Dr. Huisingh is
dedicated to interdisciplinary education and integrated approaches to
defining and solving society’s problems. He addresses topics ranging
from toxic substances and hazardous waste in industry and the home to the
philosophical, ethical, and political implications of improper land-use
management, human population growth and control, and energy use.
Dr. Huisingh’s work
has focused on Pollution Prevention/Waste Reduction approaches to managing
toxic substances and hazardous wastes. His primary research focus has been
on developing policies, concepts, and technologies to help government and
industry identify sustainable approaches to pollution prevention and waste
minimization. He seeks to improve environmental quality by integrating
these preventive approaches with traditional pollution-control approaches.
Dr. Huisingh is active
in many national and international organizations, including UNEP, UNIDO,
WHO, Asian Development Bank, and the World Bank. In addition to his
position with EERC, he continues part-time faculty positions at the
International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics (Lund
University, Sweden), the University of Massachusetts (Lowell), and
Monterrey Tec (Technological Institute of Monterrey, Mexico).
Dr. Huisingh also
serves as editor in chief for the Journal of Cleaner Production and
directs, under the auspices of Erasmus University, an international
off-campus PhD program in Cleaner Production, Cleaner Products, Industrial
Ecology, and Sustainable Development.
In his leisure time, Dr. Huisingh enjoys photography (still and movie), sailing, hiking, bicycling, jogging, woodworking, cooking, gardening, and public speaking.
