Abstract

This book aspires to be a comprehensive summary of current biofuels issues and thereby contribute to the understanding of this important topic. Readers will find themes including biofuels development efforts, their implications for the food industry, current and future biofuels crops, the successful Brazilian ethanol program, insights of the first, second, third and fourth biofuel generations, advanced biofuel production techniques, related waste treatment, emissions and environmental impacts, water consumption, produced allergens and toxins. Additionally, the biofuel policy discussion is expected to be continuing in the foreseeable future and the reading of the biofuels features dealt with in this book, are recommended for anyone interested in understanding this diverse and developing theme.

Abstract

Das Recht der Unternehmensorganisation hat sich als eine der zentralen Anknüpfungspunkte im modernen Wirtschaftsrecht erwiesen. Nach zaghaften Anfängen in den achtziger Jahren werden heute Unternehmen mit zahlreichen Organisationspflichten aus den verschiedensten Rechtsbereichen konfrontiert. Prominentes Beispiel ist der Finanzbereich, der bis weit ins Detail reichende Vorgaben zur Einrichtung von Risikomanagementsystemen umzusetzen hat. Aber auch viele andere Bereiche des öffentlichen Rechts kennen derartige Organisationspflichten. Im Zivilrecht und auch im Strafrecht ist die Figur der Organisationspflicht ebenfalls seit langem bekannt, aber kaum in seine übergreifenden Zusammenhänge gestellt worden. Das Werk beleuchtet die verschiedenen Rechtsgrundlagen für die Organisationspflichten, ihre verfasssungsrechtlichen Grundlagen, die betriebswirtschaftlichen Konkretisierungsversuche einschließlich der Qualitätsmanagement- und Standardisierungsbewegungen auf der Ebene der ISO, die zivil- und strafrechtlichen Auswirkungen bis hin zur Haftung im Konzern und der persönlichen Verantwortlichkeit der Organvertreter. Die Arbeit stellt die diversen Pflichten und ihre Ausprägungen in einem rechtsgebietsübergreifenden und auch interdisziplinären Ansatz vor, wobei für eine stärkere Zurückhaltung und eine Hinwendung zu Zielvorgaben plädiert wird.

Abstract

Very often the process of globalization is referred the word economy evolution. Often we measure and study globalization in the economic relevance. The economy is possibly the most recognized dimension of globalization. That is why we see many new phenomena and processes on economic macro levels and economic sectoral horizons as well as on specific ""geography of globalization"". The book The Economic Geography of Globalization consists of 13 chapters divided into two sections: Globalization and Macro Process and Globalization and Sectoral Process. The Authors of respective chapters represent the great diversity of disciplines and methodological approaches as well as a variety of academic culture. This book is a valuable contribution and it will certainly be appreciated by a global community of scholars.

Abstract

In the 1970s the Australian Commonwealth Government and three States, Victoria (1974), New South Wales (1977) and South Australia (1978), passed legislation to protect the built heritage within their jurisdictions. The legislation was primarily a response to two factors: a large number of public protests against the demolition of historic buildings in all Australian states by the 1970s and the influence of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, which the Whitlam Government (1972-75) embraced enthusiastically. The other states, with governments that were more influenced by development interests, were slow to follow the federal lead. 

In this study, Sharon Mosler examines heritage issues and conflicts in Adelaide from enactment of the first South Australian Heritage Act in 1978 to its successor in 1993, and also analyses issues leading from that period into the twenty-first century. State legislation introduced by the Labor government of Premier Mike Rann (2002 – present) has affected the built environment significantly since this book began. The Rann government has given the built heritage a low priority in its strategic plan compared to population growth, while the Adelaide City Council has become more balanced in the past decade, although the council too has focussed on increasing Adelaide’s population. The result has been more high-rise buildings at the expense of heritage conservation and historic precincts.

Abstract

Renewable energy sources such as biodiesel, bioethanol, biomethane, biomass from wastes or hydrogen are subject of great interest in the current energy scene. These fuels contribute to the reduction of prices and dependence on fossil fuels. In addition, energy sources such as these could partially replace the use of what is considered as the major factor responsible for global warming and the main source of local environmental pollution. For these reasons they are known as alternative fuels. There is an urgent need to find and optimise the use of alternative fuels to provide a net energy gain, to be economically competitive and to be producible in large quantities without compromising food resources.

Abstract

Dynamic service-oriented environments (SOEs) are characterised by a large number of heterogeneous service components that are expected to support the business as a whole. The present work provides a negotiation-based approach to facilitate automated and multi-level service-level management in an SOE, where each component autonomously arranges its contribution to the whole operational goals. Evaluation experiments have shown an increased responsiveness and stability of an SOE in case of changes.

Abstract

Das in der Wirtschaftspraxis zunehmend beobachtbare Phänomen der Koopetition, welches die Kooperation zwischen zueinander zugleich im Wettbewerb stehender Unternehmen beschreibt, ist aus wissenschaftlicher Perspektive empirisch und theoretisch unzureichend erfasst. Diese Arbeit untersucht daher das strategische Management dieser auf den ersten Blick paradox erscheinenden Interorganisationsbeziehungen am fokalen Beispiel eines Unternehmens der zivilen Flugzeugtriebwerksindustrie, welches im Zuge der kollektiven Erstellung komplexer Produkte (CoPS) durch tiefgreifende Kooperationspartnerschaften eng mit seinen Konkurrenten verbunden ist. Im Mittelpunkt der Analyse steht zum einen die Frage nach den spezifischen Gründen für das Auftreten und Eingehen von Koopetitionsbeziehungen, zum anderen die konkrete Ausgestaltung strategischen Handelns unter koopetitiven Verhältnissen und die Bewältigung des wettbewerblich-kooperativen Spannungsfelds durch die involvierten Unternehmen.

Abstract

The book describes the main directions for the development of the digital society. The author angles its book to those who are interested to know what would replace search engines, and how social networks would evolve; what profit can be made of different forms of informational collaboration (crowdsourcing, collaborative filtering). And, the main thing, how it will influence the structure of the society and human pursuit for happiness. The author does not confine himself to a theory, he sets and solves practical questions: How talent, success and “stardom” are interconnected, how to make money in social networks, what is the business model for the development of entertainment and media, how to measure cultural values, and what is the subjective time of the individual and how to make it qualitative? There have been no answers to these questions before. Internet and social networks have provided tools and data that Alexander Dolgin was the first to use in economics.
