Winner of the 2017 Laudise Medal, awarded for outstanding achievements in industrial ecology by a researcher under the age of 36, - Dr. Gang Liu

The 2017 Laudise Medal for Young Researchers was awarded to Gang Liu, Associate Professor for Resouorce and Waste Management at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU). Gang holds a BSc in Geography and Environmental Science from Peking University, a MSc in Resource and Environmental Management from the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), and a PhD in Industrial Ecology from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).

Gang has a strong academic performance, including the 2013 runner-up best paper award of Environmental Science and Technology and several Nature correspondences. His work has had great influence on industry strategy development (mainly aluminium industry) and on government policy (food waste policy in China).

After Edgar Hertwich (2003) and Anders Hammer Strømman (2011), Gang is the third Laudise Medal recipient with former affiliation to NTNU. In addition, he is the first recipient with a research focus on Socio-Economic Metabolism / Material Flow Analysis to receive this award. Congratulations!
