Video series focuses on materials in climate change

The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) is launching a series of videos and podcasts exploring how materials research can address the climate crisis.

The series covers exploration and extraction, processing and application, and recycling, repurposing and reuse and features case studies and interviews with industry expert.

Contributors include:

  • The Bristol Composites Institute (University of Bristol)
  • British Glass
  • The Camborne School of Mines (University of Exeter)
  • CircularMetal
  • The Henry Royce Institute
  • Innovate UK
  • bp-ICAM
  • The National Composites Centre (NCC)
  • Satarla
  • SRK Consulting
  • The University of Bath

“This is a critical time to harness the potential of the materials, minerals and mining communities, to showcase their transformative work towards a low carbon, resource efficient society,” said IOM3 CEO Dr Colin.

“Composite materials are a disruptive technology that are crucial in our transition to net zero,” said Kevin Mee, head of engineering at the NCC. “The [NCC’s] focus on high performance composites, with the underpinning development around sustainable, bio-derived materials, digital technologies and hydrogen provides a great vehicle to create new jobs and expertise, maintaining the UK’s leadership position for a sustainable future.”
