Date: Thursday 25th January 2024
An online workshop introducing critical mineral mining, material carbon cost considerations and Circular Economy with opportunities for connecting advanced material researchers across the full chain of material/technology design from source to functional structure/application and beyond (reuse and recycling options) for a whole systems design approach to sustainable technology. An in-person collaboration event to follow-up on this workshop is planned for later in the year depending on success of this event and subsequent interest.
The programme from the event is below with shareable versions of the slides available to download through the links for some of the talks.
Kathryn Moore (University of Exeter) – “Mining of primary raw materials as the critical foundation of ‘sustainable’ metals: a wicked problem for technology innovation clusters”
Sahin Alacacayir (Minviro) – “Life Cycle Assessment for a Resilient Material Supply Chains”
