Cradle-to-cradle materials: sustainability in material production and material engineering.

Project duration: 2012 -

Project description:

A series of discoveries have revolutionized material science the last 10 years. The synthesis and design of cradle-to-cradle materials allow material producers to construct products that are 100% recyclable however without loosing material quality or longevity in any recycling step. The advantages of such technologies are the rather simple recycling methods they require for a full sustainable recycling and particularly, the material-saving, cost-reducing and environmentally friendly products which do not end up in incineration or waste plants. Cradle-to-cradle products are thus potential environmental friendly solutions, which reduce the vast generation of waste worldwide, where the product itself functions as the very base for countless regenerations of new materials. This project surveys the new technologies in an emerging field of material engineering and presents the various aspect of synthesis and processing of cradle-to-cradle materials in order to sustain novel and better technologies in material design.

Keywords: Green methods, sustainable technologies, recycling methods, green materials.
