The Master's programme in Circular Economy is offered by Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) on the Lahti Campus.

The existing economic system is based on the take-make-and-dispose approach powered mostly by fossil fuels. The assumption is that increasing economic growth produces so much surplus that arising adverse environmental impacts could be dealt with.

However, the system keeps growing only if there are enough resources for transformation, sinks for waste, credit for investments and economic growth.

The circular economy offers an alternative. It aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value. It aims to decouple economic growth from the consumption of finite resources by closing the loop of product life cycles. The system in which materials are transformed into useful goods and services endlessly is powered by renewable energy systems.... [-]

We all want to build a society which will enable fruitful life also for our children.

In every investment decision, a growing need to contribute more effectively to sustainability challenges has to be taken into account.

Climate warming, weakening air quality, water pollution and waste amounts are examples of sustainability challenges faced around the world today. Sometimes traditional technologies offer the best solutions but also the integration of novel solutions to complex environmental problems are needed.... [-]

The Challenge

Materials provide the foundation of the modern global economy. They are becoming increasingly relevant for the shift to a decarbonising society as they enable the transition to renewable energy, electric mobility and resource efficiency, among others. Nevertheless, many materials are becoming critical.

Therefore, we need to develop robust solutions and game-changing technologies that allow for a sustainable stream of materials.
