Professor of Industrial Ecology in the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies,
Thomas Graedel literally wrote the book on industrial ecology.
Graedel’s research is centred on developing and enhancing industrial ecology, the organising framework for the quantification of the Anthropocene epoch. He co-authored the first textbook on the subject. He currently researches the flows of materials within the industrial ecosystem and evaluates the criticality of metals. At its heart, the circular economy aims to continue this flow of materials in a productive way.
Thomas Graedel is speaking at the following WCEF2017 sessions:
