    Monday, April 18th, 2022 the formal online presentation will start near 7:30pm.  Details for the meeting are below and in the attached pdf.  We made need a little leeway with the actual start time, since we have a student night program scheduled prior to the online portion.  If you are interested in receiving a zoom link, or attending the in person meeting, please send an email to David Guisbert at     

    Striving toward a Circular Economy: Challenges
    and Opportunities for Materials Production and Processing

    The concept of a circular economy is influencing more and
    more materials production and use. Many companies are looking to new technologies to help eliminate waste (because any pollution is a product you're not selling!) and increase productivity and efficiency through sustainable processes.  From designing products for high performance, durability, and recycling, optimizing the use of raw materials, and capturing and using waste streams, there are many new materials technologies of growing interest. Let's look at both the low‐hanging fruit and the long‐term research that will move thisconcept forward. Examples of innovations in the steel,
    aluminum, and titanium industry will be discussed.
