Sustainable Energy And Materials

Sustainable Energy and Materials focuses on innovative ways to provide energy and material resources to society, in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner. The central task is to build and shape the energy and industrial infrastructure of the 21st century. Many projects focus on treating the inefficiencies and by-products of traditional production in novel ways, such as carbon sequestration, zero-emission coal, catalysis, and recycling technologies. Other projects focus on developing viable alternative energy sources, such as waste-to-energy.
