What can the Internet of Things do for sustainability?
Connecting products to the IoT makes it possible to monitor field data and fill important information gaps, thus promoting a circular economy and enhancing life cycle assessment.
As a Consultant at PRé, Emilia works on projects in the fields of LCA, decarbonization, and circular economy – often with a focus on digitalization.
Emilia holds a PhD in Sustainable Design Engineering from the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at TU Delft in the Netherlands. Her research focused on how companies can use emerging digital technologies, such as the Internet of Things, to support the design and implementation of circular strategies. Emilia also holds an M.Sc. in Industrial Ecology and an M.Eng. in Engineering Physics, both from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. Other previous experiences include environmental management in manufacturing, analysis of low-carbon transport and energy systems, and research into critical raw materials.
