Sustainable Solutions

Sustainable Solutions seeks solutions to promote sustainable development. Awareness about the urgency to solve sustainability challenges has increased and the need to find cost-effective solutions is obvious. In order to find best solutions the context within which a product operates need to be understood. Sustainable solutions is specialized on finding solutions related to sustainable community whether that relates either to energy supply, water supply or waste management systems or industrial systems. The research covering the whole life cycle is in the core of our research and we can also participate to a research which develops methodologies for life cycle studies. Our group develops assessment and communication methods related to sustainability, analyses improvement possibilities of product chains, compares solution options and searches innovative overall solutions to improve sustainability.
