Environmental Technology and Management
WE TURN ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS INTO OPPORTUNITIES
The Division for Environmental Technology and Management is an interdisciplinary research group with thirty years experience of turning environmental problems into opportunities. Our main focus is the transformation of organisations, technical systems and products and services towards a resource efficient society. Today the division is a research and education environment with international reputation and with 25 employees and 900 students.
Focused education, intensive communication, some highly motivated individuals and ownership are the keys to developing sustainable local energy systems, researchers from Linköping University have shown in a report.
Toyota Material Handling Europe and Linköping University’s Department of Management and Engineering recently signed an agreement for a long-term strategic collaboration.
Two separate articles in the Journal of Cleaner Productionhighlight Linköping University (LiU) as one of the leading universities in research in functional sales – an important element in the attempt to achieve a circular economy.
The mines of the future may be closer than we think. A degree project from Linköping University demonstrates that landfill at the Gärstad waste facility in Linköping contains metals worth SEK 3 billion.
