Meeting 2022 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium REWAS 2022: Coupling Metallurgy and Sustainability: An EPD Symposium in Honor of Diran Apelian
Presentation Title Sustainable Development of Materials: Combining Chemicals Management, Life Cycle Thinking and the Circular Economy
Author(s) Julie M. Schoenung
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Julie M. Schoenung
Abstract Scope The goal is sustainability. But what does that mean? In materials science and engineering we develop materials for technologies that promote sustainability, such as for renewable energy and electric vehicles. But are these materials and the processes by which they are made sustainable in and of themselves? How can we do our part by intentionally designing for the ‘sustainable development of materials’ – in all products? We must promote materials recovery and recycling, i.e., the circular economy, and the minimization of waste. Resources and process inputs such as raw material feedstocks, energy and water must also be considered. Toxic chemicals in products and manufacturing must be identified and eliminated. In this presentation, several case studies will be highlighted to provide insight into the methodologies, datasets and decision tools that now exist to evaluate tradeoffs among these multiple criteria, which ultimately support better decision-making and enable the sustainable development of materials.
