MEMS 1087 - SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS PRODUCTION
Minimum Credits: 3
Maximum Credits: 3
This course will focus on the use of global resources in the production of the most heavily consumed materials in manufacturing and construction. For each of these materials the production process will be described starting with the resources from which they are derived and ending with the needs of the manufacturing or construction process in which they are used. The material life cycle and materials eco-selection criteria will be used to highlight end-of-life issues and how the sustainability of materials production may be improved. The use of strategic minerals in materials production will also be highlighted. Finally, renewable materials will be introduced and the prospects for their widespread use in materials production considered.
