At the end of the module, the students are able to understand important concepts and methods of Industrial Ecology (IE). In particular, they understand the structure and components of Material Flow Analysis (MFA), Life Cycle Analysis (LCA), raw material criticality assessments, and environmentally-extended closed-loop supply chain management (CLSC). The students are able to apply these methods to interdisciplinary problems of sustainable production and consumption as well as circular economy. Additionally, the students gain insights into analyzing interactions between economy, technosphere, ecosphere and society. This enables them to evaluate the impacts of decisions in management and engineering.
