Analysis of material and energy flows in industrial and ecological systems to enhance eco-efficiency and sustainability in meeting human needs. Methods: life cycle assessment quantifies energy, wastes and emissions for materials production, manufacturing, product use, and recovery/disposition; life cycle design integrates environmental, performance, economic, and policy/regulatory objectives. This interdisciplinary course also includes a series of industrial/municipal site assessments. Industrial Ecology applies systems analysis for understanding the complex interactions between industrial systems, ecological systems, and societal needs. This course is organized into a theoretical component which addresses the ecological framework for industrial ecology and a practical component which presents tools and methods for implementing principles of industrial ecology.
