EPSRC announces new green engineering projects
Date:12/4/2012

HeterogeneoUs MatErials in Manufacturing will address the challenging task of recycling composite materials which are increasingly used in areas that involve fuel efficiency and the lightweighting of products. The project will demonstrate vital re-manufacturing science and chemical/process engineering to the waste industry. It will develop the data sets and exemplars of mixed composite processing and resource footprints that can be used to drive the future of scrap re-use across different industrial sectors.

Led by Dr Gary Leeke from the University of Birmingham in collaboration with Cranfield University, the University of Manchester and the University of Exeter.

Dr Leeke said: "The increased use of composites, for example carbon fibre, automatically leads to large amounts of waste, which either goes to landfill or incineration. These have financial and environmental costs as well as preventing material re-use. Our research is exciting as it is expected to begin a step-change in resource efficiency. The team will develop novel recycling processes and a systems approach to remanufacture composite scrap material for cross-sector applications in aerospace, automotive, marine and construction industries".

Value of grant 1.4 million

CORE; Creative outreach for resource efficiency, with the UK's rate of recycling of municipal waste still ranked only 11th in Europe and growing pressure to address materials' scarcity, there is strong evidence that there needs to be greater public engagement in Resource Efficiency. The project will support a creative outreach programme to increase user involvement and understanding of Resource Efficiency. It will help the other EPSRC-supported projects that emerged from the sandpit and work with partner institutions to use exciting mechanisms such as pop-up labs, crowdsourcing, podcasts, social design and innovation, physical hands-on and fun demonstrations and schools events to encourage discussion and deli
