Fall OCI Listing    


A series of nine one-day field trips designed to expose students to the various aspects of industrial ecology.  In previous years, students have visited waste management facilities, utility providers, product manufactures, clean tech start-ups, and green consultancies in New England and the surrounding regions.  The field trips allow students to gain a better understanding of the concepts and themes of industrial ecology (such as material and process flows, lifecycle assessment, and closed-loop systems) in the context of existing operations.
