I’ll attend the 14th Meeting of the Institute of Life Cycle Assessment at Kyushu University, Japan on March 5th-7th, 2019. I’ll present on the 7th the research entitled “Indicators to measure the progress of circular economy considering life-cycle assessment perspectives”. This research explores three major concepts of Circular Economy (CE): the economic, environmental, and social aspects and synthesizing the relationship between them. It aims to (1) review and classify the CE aspects and key concepts in the literature through Qualitative Data Analysis (QDA) of the articles published on CE, including the various CE definitions; and (2) classify CE indicators to measure how close or far countries and industries are from the transition to CE.
