Marcus Foston and Ulugbek Kamilov won a DOE grant to upcycle plastic waste
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.
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.
Method could reduce nondegradable plastics and greenhouse gas emissions
Cobalt-based catalysts could be used to turn mixed plastic waste into fuel, new plastics, and other products.
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
