Keywords: Agglomeration Economies, Industrial Ecology, Industrial Metabolism, Industrial Symbiosis, Public Policies

The neoclassical economic theory and the agglomeration economies literature completely overlook the importance of environmental and sustainability issues, so they cannot answer to the question whether economic sustained growth and environmental sustainability can be combined.
