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.
