    Event description

    Rumana Hossain and Keith MonaghanΒ from the SMaRT Centre UNSW will be discussing the innovative recycling workΒ and research being undertaken at the SMaRT Centre's microfactory

    The manufacturing industry worldwide will face intense challenges in future, as finite supplies of raw materials dwindle and many conventional manufacturing processes will be outlawed on environmental grounds. The good news is that, as all scientists know, every problem contains an opportunity. One of the major problems we face at the moment is waste. Researchers at SMaRT@UNSW are dedicated to finding new solutions to some of these problems by discovering innovative ways of β€œmining” the waste streams for valuable, new materials.

    About Microrecycling at SMaRT Centre UNSW

    • Seeks to understand how the many components of waste behave at molecular, atomic and nano levelsΒ and how the reactions prompted by controlled heat can be beneficially employed.
    • Creates β€œMicrorecycling” technology which can potentially protect the environment from the negative impacts of landfilling toxic waste stream, reducing pressures on natural resources.
    • Β Offer manufacturers access to low cost secondary resources that would otherwise be sourced from increasingly expensive raw materials.
