He developed a new concept to assess the life cycle of a product according to cradle-to-cradle concept instead of cradle-to-grave concept used worldwide until today. This concept was developed based on 30 years of intensive and continual effort at AUC and was documented in two books. The first book published in 2007 by Elsevier Academic Press is entitled Sustainable Industrial Design and Waste Management: Cradle-to-Cradle for Sustainable Development. The second book published in 2015 by AUC Press is entitled Sustainability and Innovation: The Next Global Industrial Revolution. These two books are the first books worldwide to demonstrate the concept of cradle-to-cradle to protect not only the environment but also the natural resources in terms of business plans. Dr. El-Haggar developed the first and the only Sustainable Development labs worldwide located in Mechanical Engineering Department at AUC.
