Research Unit of Waste and Resource Management
Our Mission Statement
Growth in materials consumption causes increasing amounts of wastes and consumer emissions. It is our goal to supply tools for a better understanding and design of the metabolism of urban societies. Our solutions support a gradual shift from a quantitative material growth to a qualitative increase in welfare with less pollution and better resource use.
