Personal statement

Dai Tiejun, Ph.D. in Industrial Ecology, Postdoctoral in Resources, Environment and Circular Economy. Professor, Ph.D tutor, in Beijing University of Technology. He has been dedicated to theoretical and applied researches in Industrial ecology and circular economy over more than two decades. He has made some academic achievements in industrial ecology theory, material cycle theory and application, theory and evaluation of eco-industrial park, synthetic evaluation in regional economies and resource & environment, management and evaluation of recycling and utilization of renewable resources, circular economy development strategy and policy, etc., and established strong communication and cooperation with foreign counterparts in these fields. As the presider or main participant, He finished the projects of National Key Technologies R&D Program, National Natural Science Foundation of China, Beijing Natural Science Foundation, Beijing Social Science Foundation, Chinese Academy of Engineering, etc., and obtained some achievements. In terms of theoretical research, He builts a simplified substance flow diagram of the manufacturing process, formulated two evaluation indices of eco-connectance of an eco-industrial park and the rate of waste recovery for resource, found the stability condition of eco-industrial park, built regional (industry and waste) metabolism model, concordance analysis model of material flow and value flow, and cost-benefit model and ecological cost model for waste management. As for practical application, I formulated well-received strategies, polices and implementation plans of circular economy development for local governments, cities, industrial parks, industries and enterprises, which brought about economic and environmental benefits for local governments and enterprises. Six of them were appraised as the model units or pilots units of national circular economy. HE compiled a monograph, edited two textbooks, one English book and two other academic writings as an editorial board member or a participant, and published 50 pieces of scientific paper, and 40 of them were collected by SCI, SSCI, CSSCI and CSCD. He got the third prize of provincial and ministerial level scientific and technological achievement. The “Industrial Ecology” course that I taught was successfully voted among the Graduate Excellent Courses of Beijing University of technology. I guided two postgraduates’ thesis to get selected as the University Excellent Thesis.
