SDU Life Cycle Engineering (LCE)


SDU Life Cycle Engineering (LCE) conducts unique research in system analysis and systems integration. The theory and methods of Environmental System Analysis, including Material Flow Analysis (MFA), Life Cycle Assessment (LCA), Energy System Analysis (ESA) and economic and socio-economic assessment (SEA) lie at the core of the research in LCE. Applying such methods, the research at LCE aims at understanding and characterizing the sustainability of socio-economic development, including societal infrastructure development, urban development and the technological development of industrial and agricultural products and systems. LCE is strongly engaged in the international research community of Industrial Ecology as well as in the international sustainable development agendas of bio-economy and circular economy.


The research fields at LCE were established in 2007, and by October 2017, the centre counted 21 researchers from 9 countries. LCE is predominantly externally funded and engaged in a large number of strategic research projects funded by a variety of sources from EU projects, national strategic research and innovation projects, sector research projects (e.g., the Danish Environmental Protection Agency and Danish Energy Agency) to private company projects and NGO projects.


The education & teaching portfolio at LCE covers a broad range of technology and science courses related to these research areas. LCE is running the university's Master program in Environmental Engineering and is extensively involved in both the Bachelor and Master programs on Energy Technology and on Integrated Design and Sustainable Product Development.
