Marcus Foston and Ulugbek Kamilov won a DOE grant to upcycle plastic waste

Upcycling is the new recycling

A project at DTU Risø Campus shows that heat recovery is the most sustainable and economical choice—even at a time of rising electricity prices.

Heat from supercomputers recycled at DTU

The rapid increase in electric car sales is causing a battery shortage. To solve this problem, we must get better at recycling the raw materials used in batteries and accelerate the development of new battery types.

Recycling and rethinking batteries

Method could reduce nondegradable plastics and greenhouse gas emissions

New system creates bioplastics, consumes CO2

Cobalt-based catalysts could be used to turn mixed plastic waste into fuel, new plastics, and other products.

New process could enable more efficient plastics recycling

If devices lasted longer and were easier to fix, they could provide many years of good service before recycling. That saves precious materials and the energy needed to manufacture new products.

A new chemically designed lignin leads to stronger, lighter carbon fiber and better recycled plastics

By design: from waste to next-gen carbon fiber

EPFL scientists have developed a new, PET-like plastic that is easily made from the non-edible parts of plants. The plastic is tough, heat-resistant, and a good barrier to gases like oxygen, making it a promising candidate for food packaging.
