From Tuesday 4 Aug 2020 at 9AM
To Thursday 6 Aug 2020 at 3PM

 

CIRANO and the Ministry of Environment and Fight Against Climate Change, in collaboration with the I-EDDEC Dialogue & Transfert, the Chair of Energy Sector Management at HEC Montréal, Université Laval and Polytechnique Montréal, invite you to participate in the Workshop on Circular Economy. The objective of the event is to validate with experts and stakeholders the interests and priorities for the deployment of the circular economy in Quebec in order to include them in the Government Sustainable Development Strategy 2022-2027.

 

The workshop includes a scoping lecture, which will prepare participants for their contribution to the one of the three 2-hour roundtables. The workshop will bring together stakeholders from different levels of decision making from academia, government, the private sector and the community. In light of the pandemic, the scoping conference will take place on Tuesday, August 4 and the roundtables will take place on August 5 (9:00-11:00 am) and August 6 (9:00-11:00 am / 1:00-3:00 pm). Confirmed participants will be assigned to the one of three slots with a maximum of 10 people per table.

 

Participants who register for the workshop will be assigned to one of the three tables and a Zoom link will be sent to them to join their table.

The event is by invitation only and participation is limited to 30 participants.

The round tables are full.

Guillaume Majeau-Bettez is a researcher within the two research chairs associated with the CIRAIG, the International Life Cycle Chair and the Research Chair for Advanced Waste Recycling. He is also Assistant Associate Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). His research aims to better understand the complex causal chains linking consumption activities and technological choices to environmental emissions and resource extraction. To this end, he focuses on the coherent integration of multiple databases, methods and analytical tools, including combining system descriptions from life cycle assessment (LCA), material flow analysis (MFA), extended economic and environmental input-output models (EEIO), and process models.
detailed parameterized engineering and optimization algorithms. It aims to go beyond simple "hybrid LCA" and bring a convergence of perspectives in the analysis of industrial ecology, to address the complex material and economic issues of downcycling, rebound effects and circular economy. He holds an Honours BSc in Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry from McGill University and an MSc and PhD in Industrial Ecology from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.

José Potting

José (Josepha) Potting holds a PhD in the Environmental Sciences. She has some 30 years of experiences in environmental modelling and assessment, notably life cycle assessment, and acted as researcher and project-leader in many international research projects. She works presently for several customers from her consultancy, EnviroSpotting (Netherlands). The last two years she has helped Wageningen University & Research to develop a vision and strategy for making their own organisation circular. Until summer 2018, she worked as a senior policy researcher for PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and held a professor-position at the Swedish KTH Royal Institute of Technology. On behalf of PBL, she has been leading the development of a monitoring system to follow the progress of the Dutch policy program A circular economy in the Netherlands by 2050. The monitoring system contains indicators to measure developments in resource and material use, environmental pressures and economy by circular economy activity. However, the novelty of the monitoring system is in indicators to measure the implementation and transition process itself.
