The Institute for Industrial Ecology (INEC) is a research institute at Pforzheim University and was founded in 2010. We analyze energy and material flows at the interface of technosphere and ecosphere. With our research, we contribute to the ecological and economical optimization of product life cycles and operational production processes. In our projects (funded by government agencies and the industry), we also address many other aspects of industrial ecology and quantitative sustainability assessment.
