With support from the National Science Foundation, the effective collaboration of facets within ecological engineering was analyzed. Using the case study of Chesapeake Bay contaminated sediment, the unity, sustainability, and future direction of all ecological engineering's disciplines -- environmental engineering, environmental technology, appropriate technology, and industrial ecology -- were analyzed and described, and directions of focus recommended. This single case study was used as a concrete example for our far-reaching analysis of the above disciplines within ecological engineering.
