Theme 3: Materials Design for Sustainability and Energy Harvesting
Dr. Surojit Gupta, University of North Dakota,
Dr. Indrajit Dutta, Corning Inc.,
Dr. Hamidreza Mohseni, BOSCH,
Dr. D. Wen, University of Leeds,

Themes: Sustainability has become an integral component of research, and a critical issue for the growth and well-being of society. Some of the critical challenges are the rapid urbanization, a growing and aging population, the large amount of waste disposed to landfill, global impoverishing of natural resources and environment (fossil fuels, minerals, water and energy scarcity etc.), declining infrastructure, the emergency to control carbon dioxide emissions among others. These challenges have prompted – materials scientists and engineers to design “green” or environmentally benign technologies. This component of the symposium will focus on a variety of green and sustainable technologies for energy harvesting, additive manufacturing, green tribology, next generation products and processes, and development of advanced instrumentation and control systems etc.
Proposed Session Topics
- Solar Energy
- Energy Harvesting
- Nanotechnology and next generation multifunctional materials
- Additive manufacturing, 3D printing, and sustainability
- Green Tribology
- Life cycle analysis of materials and products
