ECOLOGY FOR A SUSTAINABLE WORLD
The Program in Industrial Ecology at UC-Irvine brings
together an interdisciplinary group of Principal Investigators and students who are interested in
understanding the complex interactions between industrial activities and
environmental systems at all scales of analysis. We use the case study approach to explore
various configurations of industrial and ecological systems, and how our
understanding can lead to new policy designs or changes in existing
policies to protect public and environmental health without compromising
economic gains or stifling innovation in industrial productivity. Our multidisciplinary approach integrates engineering,
design, manufacturing, economic, environmental, public health, and public
policy aspects of these problems. We are open to collaborative research, as
industrial ecology is by definition a multidisciplinary research enterprise.
Our program provides opportunity for student training, both graduate and
undergraduate levels, for postdocs and visiting professors. Please feel free to contact us.
