Scope Every sector faces unique challenges in the transition to sustainability. Across each, materials will play a key role.

For each respective sector, these sessions will explore the trends and drivers toward sustainability, the enabling materials technologies, and the tools to evaluate their implications.

In particular, this session is seeking talks dealing with challenges and solutions in:
- Transportation
- Built environment (including buildings and infrastructure)
- Electrical and electronic equipment and infrastructure (EEEI)
- Energy production and storage

This session will require the submission of a manuscript of three to six pages in length. In most cases, those articles will appear in the 2016 REWAS proceedings. If topically appropriate, the submission will instead appear in the Energy Technology, Magnesium Technology, or Aluminum proceedings. Approximately 10% of submissions will be invited to submit a revised and expanded manuscript for publication in a special edition of the Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy.

REWAS 2016 – Towards Materials Resource Sustainability

Society faces grand challenges today, as the status quo is not sustainable. New solutions need to be found and the materials community will be central to those solutions. Specifically, the materials and metallurgical industry is strategically positioned to contribute via the establishment and selection of sustainable processes, materials and recycling solutions.

Realizing those solutions, however, will require collaboration and cooperation across disciplines and across the stages of the product life cycle. REWAS 2016 will provide an interdisciplinary platform where the materials and metallurgical professional can interact and exchange with other stakeholders and research fields to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable industry and society.

The REWAS 2016 symposium will be organized along three themes:

1) Realizing sustainable products and systems
2) Enabling sustainability
3) Understanding sustainability
