Universität für Bodenkultur Wien

The Institute of Waste Management at BOKU – University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna was founded in 1993. Besides other relevant waste management topics we have a focus on waste prevention and sustainability assessment of consumer goods and material flows (e.g. food, electrical and electronic devices, bulky waste) based on a life cycle approach. The presence of consumer goods after their use is analysed with respect to individual psychological (e.g. consumption behaviour) as well as contextual (e.g. social, legal, economic) influencing factors. Our project partners include ministries, waste management authorities, companies, research organisations, NGOs and others.
