ENVE 470 Industrial Ecology 3.0 Credits

Industrial Ecology (IE) is an evolving view of industrial operations which seeks to design processes and manufacture products in such a way to minimize and optimize their environmental interactions. IE borrows the analogy from nature that “waste” from one organism is “food” for another. Within the “technosphere”, the organization in which economic processes and activities are conducted by humans, IE uses the evolving tools life cycle assessment (LCA), material flow analysis (MFA), and economic valuation, to explore novel approaches to minimizing waste stocks and flows at both micro and macro levels.
