MATS204 Treasure or Trash: Sustainability of Materials is a new Summer School paper, which will be taught by Dr Linda Dunn and Associate Professor Wakes from the Centre for Materials Science and Technology. The broad and complex challenges associated with sustainability of materials are examined in this paper, beginning with national and international principles of sustainability, certification models and assessment tools. It will investigate aspects of product lifecycle as it relates to material selection and use, and the role of the consumer. It will also identify key elements affecting materials such as processing production, design and end-of-life, and explore alternatives.
