Safer and more sustainable materials for manufacturing
Date:2/12/2014

um and tellurium, while implementing processes compatible with large-scale manufacturing. Led by the University of Bristol.

  • Synthesising and processing alternative thermoelectric and piezoelectric materials used in functional devices including sensors, actuators and energy harvesters. Sensors and actuators are used in motion detectors, fuel injectors, engine sensors and medical diagnostic tools. The UK sensors market is worth an estimated 3 billion. Led by the University of Surrey.

  • Investigating waste biomass and waste CO2 to replace petrochemical feedstocks in the manufacture of polymers. For example, food waste or wood shavings could be turned into home insulation or into engineering materials for house construction. The research will aim to develop processes which will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50 per cent, at no extra cost to production. Led by the University of York.

    David Delpy, Chief Executive of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), said: "Through the development and deployment of improved materials, processes and products that will come from this research, UK industries will be able to create wealth and new jobs, whilst at the same time tackling the societal and environmental challenges that resulted from the use of the original materials which were often rare and difficult to refine."
