Research Papers

MIND is one of the main research institutes in Sri Lanka that continue to produce advanced scientific research on Sustainable Production and Consumption (SPC), a key area of sustainable development. All sustainability issues of today are directly or indirectly linked to SPC but with limited scientific research.

During last couple of years MIND researchers published three peer reviewed research papers in Journal of Sustainable Production and Consumption, the journal of the Institution of Chemical Engineers of UK.

All three publications look at issues and challenges in converting traditional product life cycles to sustainable life cycles.
