Environmental Technology and Management (MILJÖ)

Division of Environmental Technology is a research and education environment. Our focus is on how environmental problems lead to changes in products, services , technical systems and organisations and how it affects the environment.




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.

The division Environmental Technology and Management  is divided into four units:

  • Unit for Sustainable Development and Strategies
  • Unit for Industrial and Urban Symbiosis
  • Unit for Products Services Innovation
  • Unit for Sustainable Materials Management
