The use of the traditional energy has caused the deterioration of global environment and exhaustion of resources. And there are two ways to deal with this problem globally, one is to discover the new energy like green energy and new species of minerals, and the other is to develop energy saving technology or approach like green design and material flow cost accounting. Although material flow cost accounting (MFCA) does not create new energy substantially, its implementation can reduce the energy use or increase productivity and reduce the environmental shock, so it also can be regarded as another innovative energy.
