IELab Australia

Originally developed in and for Australia, the Industrial Ecology Virtual Laboratory (IELab) has succeeded in bringing together a diverse set of sustainability researchers and practitioners from around Australia, enabling tangible, inter-disciplinary research outputs. These include published triple bottom line assessments of industrial biofuel production and large-scale biorefining, low-carbon construction materials and high-resolution waste modelling. See the journal publications for details.

IELab Australia provides a much-used basis for data and analysis in industry-relevant, cooperative research, including integrated sustainability assessments and tools for the construction industry and the water industry. The IELab’s direction is co-steered by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, ensuring that IELab outputs conform to national accounting standards, thus instilling credibility and trust.
