Material flow analysis (MFA) is a systematic assessment of the flows and stocks of materials within a system defined in space and time. It connects the sources, the pathways, and the intermediate and final sinks of a material. Because of the law of the conservation of matter, the results of an MFA can be controlled by a simple material balance comparing all inputs, stocks, and outputs of a process. It is this distinct characteristic of MFA that makes the method attractive as a decision-support tool in resource management, waste management, and environmental management. (Brunner & Rechberger, 2004)

Students will be able to:

1. Delineate a system of material flows and stocks by well-defined, uniform terms

2. Reduce the complexity of the system as far as possible while still guaranteeing a basis for sound decision making

3. Assess the relevant flows and stocks in quantitative terms, thereby applying the balance principle and revealing sensitivities and uncertainties

4. Present results about flows and stocks of a system in a reproducible, understandable, and transparent way¨

5. Use the results as a basis for managing resources, the environment, and wastes, in particular for:

a. Early recognition of potentially harmful or beneficial accumulations and depletions of stocks, as well as for timely prediction of future environmental loadings

b. The setting of priorities regarding measures for environmental protection, resource conservation, and waste management (what is most important; what comes first?)

c. The design of goods, processes, and systems that promote environmental protection, resource conservation, and waste management (green design, ecodesign, design for recycling, design for disposal, etc.)
