Resource recovery and remediation of highly alkaline residues : a political-industrial ecology approach to building a circular economy (2017)
Journal Article
Deutz, P., Baxter, H., Gibbs, D., Mayes, W. M., & Gomes, H. I. (2017). Resource recovery and remediation of highly alkaline residues : a political-industrial ecology approach to building a circular economy. Geoforum, 85, 336-344. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.geoforum.2017.03.021

Highly alkaline industrial residues (e.g., steel slag, bauxite processing residue (red mud) and ash from coal combustion) have been identified as stocks of potentially valuable metals. Technological change has created demand for metals, such as vanad... Read More

Institutionalizing alternative economic spaces? An interpretivist perspective on diverse economies (2017)
Journal Article
Krueger, R., Schulz, C., & Gibbs, D. C. (2018). Institutionalizing alternative economic spaces? An interpretivist perspective on diverse economies. Progress in human geography, 42(4), 569-589. https://doi.org/10.1177/0309132517694530

This article offers an approach that helps geographers and others to carefully and critically reexamine prospects for diverse economies. We propose an interpretative institutionalist perspective is useful for elucidating overlooked opportunities for... Read More

Identifying hotspots and management of critical ecosystem services in rapidly urbanizing Yangtze River Delta Region, China (2017)
Journal Article
Cai, W., Gibbs, D., Zhang, L., Ferrier, G., & Cai, Y. (2017). Identifying hotspots and management of critical ecosystem services in rapidly urbanizing Yangtze River Delta Region, China. Journal of environmental management, 191, 258-267. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jenvman.2017.01.003

Sustainability transitions and leapfrogging in latecomer cities : the development of solar thermal energy in Dezhou, China (2017)
Journal Article
Yu, Z., & Gibbs, D. (2018). Sustainability transitions and leapfrogging in latecomer cities : the development of solar thermal energy in Dezhou, China. Regional studies, 52(1), 68-79. https://doi.org/10.1080/00343404.2016.1260706

Sustainability transitions in cities in emerging economic contexts are rarely addressed. The paper addresses this issue by investigating the drivers and barriers in the diffusion of solar thermal energy in two Chinese cities, Dezhou and Beijing. The... Read More
