Circular Economy

research

The fourth research program of the Chair aims to enable a more sustainable use of resources through an improved (re)circulation of matter in the economy.

Our three-pronged approach will not only combine LCA with other tools and perspectives, but it will also contribute substantial methodological improvements to LCA in terms of its treatment of matter, and relate these mass flows to absolute resource availability.
