Prospects for Making Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Effective

Reid Lifset's research and teaching focus on the emerging field of industrial ecology, the study of the environmental consequences of production and consumption. He is editor-in-chief of the Journal of Industrial Ecology, an international peer-reviewed quarterly headquartered at and owned by Yale University and published by MIT Press.  In addition, he is Associate Director of the Industrial Environmental Management Program.  His research focuses on the application of industrial ecology to novel problems and research areas, and the evolution of extended producer responsibility (EPR).  He is currently investigating the global life cycle of metals, the environmental implications of a shift to bio-based materials and fuels, and the application of industrial ecology in Asia, especially China. He has published extensively on EPR and on solid waste issues in professional and academic publications and is editor of the Yale Working Papers on Solid Waste Policy.  He serves on the Science Advisory Board of the U.S. EPA and is a member of the governing council of the International Society for Industrial Ecology (ISIE) and the editorial advisory board for the Kluwer book series on Eco-efficiency in Industry & Science.
