Janneke van Oorschot
Research staff member
Janneke started her bachelor’s in industrial design engineering at the TU Delft in 2013. There she performed a minor in circular product design, which encouraged her to start her master’s in industrial Ecology. During her master Janneke specialized in spatial analysis (GIS) and material flow analysis (MFA). For her master thesis she analyzed how spatial planning of green infrastructure in The Hague can enhance the city’s resilience to air pollution, heat and extreme precipitation.
Janneke now continues her research using MFA, analyzing the circularity potential of the electricity system in the Netherlands.
As a part the national program to move towards a circular economy, it is investigated to what extent a shift towards secondary production is possible in the Netherlands. The focus of Janneke’s project is on making an inventory of the urban mine related to the electricity system. Both the quantity of valuable materials, their location, and the accessibility of the mine are studied.
