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.
Joint project LiBinfinity aims at an energy-efficient recycling concept for lithium-ion batteries - KIT takes over the evaluation of the recyclates
A team of researchers from The Australian National University (ANU) and CSIRO will develop technology that harvests valuable resources from our wastewater.
A new chemically designed lignin leads to stronger, lighter carbon fiber and better recycled plastics
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.
Team CORE presents new system using AI technology to detect batteries in waste streams to prevent waste fires
Three Cambridge engineers, Dr Cyrille Dunant, Dr Pippa Horton and Professor Julian Allwood, have filed a patent and been awarded new research funding for their invention of the world’s first ever zero-emissions cement.
A closed-loop system for engineering quality plastics provides dividends to products, economy and people.
In this episode, we talk about how a radical change in plastic composition can significantly minimize waste when recycling plastics without compromising material properties and a first of its kind smart fabric with customizable properties which serves as the first step towards a whole new market
A team of ETH researchers led by Athina Anastasaki have succeeded in breaking down plastic into its molecular building blocks and in recovering over 90 percent of them. A first step towards genuine plastic recycling.
We are looking for innovators developing recycling technology or circular products from engineering plastics.
