The course will begin by examining the theoretical foundation for industrial ecology, as well as present an overview of some of the main research themes. The course will also cover key sub-concepts, such as industrial symbiosis, as well as provide an in-depth look at eco-industrial parks, the most tangible application of industrial ecology. While the course will focus on the Canadian context, it will also introduce students to industrial ecology research and practice worldwide.
