- New, composite materials such as fibre-reinforced polymers used for new-generation planes and vehicles are non-biodegradable and, at the moment, unrecyclable – so what do we do with the products when their serviceable life is over? Two researchers in the School of Chemical Engineering are hoping their groundbreaking work in this little-known field will provide opportunity for the global recycling of materials like glass and carbon fibres for phone cases or knitting needles!
- A collaborative £400k Innovate UK (IPD11) project between the University of Birmingham and Hubbard Products Ltd, led by Dearman Engine Company Ltd, will commence in July 2015. The project will deliver a cost-effective zero emissions auxiliary system for power and cooling to reduce CO2 emissions of refrigerated trucks and air-conditioned buses, in addition to other emissions benefits.
- The University of Birmingham will host the 2015 UK Thermal Energy Storage Workshop on Wednesday 10 – Thursday 11 June 2015. The workshop will bring together UK and international leading experts from research and industry to explore technical developments, systems and applications and industrial needs in energy storage research.
