IIIEE researcher Katherine Whalen has published a research article in the Journal of Cleaner Production. The paper explores three types of circular business models that help extend the lifetimes of products and reflects critically on their associated environmental consequences. One main finding is that not all ‘circular’ business models will actually reduce resource consumption. 

Katherine Whalen is a PhD candidate at the IIIEE and are part of MISTRA REES, a Swedish research programme on circular economy.
