Economics of Materials

This area of research is concerned to the life cycle and impact of materials, from design to production to distribution to use to recycling or disposal. The challenge is to redesign the materials economy so that it is compatible with the ecosystem. It includes designing products so that they can be easily disassembled and recycled, redesigning industrial processes to eliminate waste generation.
