CHEM-E6215, Circular Economy Design Forum
- How to design for recycling: products/processes/services
- Multidisciplinary platform for innovation and added value business
- Entrepreneurial mind-set in Circular Economy context
Period: 03.03.2021 - 28.04.2021
Registration: 01.02.2021 - 08.03.2021
Intended learning outcomes:
After the completion of the course the student has
- create their own prospective to circular economy and its relevance in the production and processing of metallic raw materials
- developed entrepreneurial thinking from a circular economy perspective
- modeled innovative recycling processes to determine their feasibility and environmental impact
- applied their knowledge to design product/process/service for circular economy, aspects of economic analysis
- worked in a multidisciplinary team
At this course the student conceptualize the role of a circular economy model for the production of raw materials. The students will work in groups and apply an entrepreneurial mind-set to solve an industry relevant project by developing a new process, product or system design and construct a business plan around it. The student groups will present their projects in front of a panel of experts.

The course is aimed at Sustainable Metals Processing Master and Doctoral students of the Aalto University School of Chemical Engineering (CHEM) and also at Creative Sustainability Master students of the Aalto University School of Business.
In addition, students from other schools in Aalto are encouraged to participate, but in that case the teacher will provide additional material to cover the prerequisites. CHEM-E6130 Metal Recycling Technologies (5 cr) and CHEM-E6155 Circular Economy for Materials Processing (5 cr), recommended for students in Sustainable Metals Processing major. For others, a strong background in one’s own field (design, business, engineering, politics) is recommended.
