New Lecture Series: Sustainability in Materials Science and Engineering

The production and manufacturing of materials contribute significantly to industrial CO2 emissions – a problem that

needs to be tackled, when dealing with the issue of environmental pollution.

Development of sustainable production and manufacturing methods as well as materials with better properties and recyclability and improved functionalities (solar cells) can help addressing those urgent environmental issue.

In order to get a closer look at the recent developments, we initiated a new lecture series with talks from different seminars and colloquia that address sustainability aspects in materials science.
