ECLIPS is a unique collaborative research program based on a vision of generating and disseminating knowledge about sustainable closed-loop systems, systems that encompass all activities related to product reuse, recycling or remanufacturing (product re-X), including:

Business Decisions — Entering re-X markets, closed-loop supply chain management, green marketing, product positioning, competitive response and business innovation;

Engineering Decisions — Reverse logistics network design, energy implications of product re-X, material selection and product design for re-X;

Policy IssuesThe impact of regulation (EPR, WEEE, RoHS, permit trading) on business, global competition and economic development; and

City and Regional Planning — Opportunities presented by the development of a recycling infrastructure and industry.

ECLIPS stands for Expanding Closed-loops in Production Systems. Since sustainable closed-loop systems touch on so many different levels, it's important for the research to take a holistic view as well. That's why ECLIPS is a collaboration between the College of Management, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Public Policy, and City and Regional Planning.
