Transformation of Complex Waste into High Value Sustainable Materials through Microfactories

Back to search results

This PhD project is component of the unique micro-factory concept developed at SMaRT centre, UNSW, to convert waste into high value materials. An innovative process will be developed to transform plastics from various waste sources into two primary products: composite filaments and micro-pellets for advanced manufacturing and polymeric electrodes for energy storage. To enhance the properties of the products, various other waste inputs such as metals, ceramics, FRPs, GRPs, carbon fibre will be utilised as additives. The project will involve active multi-disciplinary collaboration with Australian and Indian universities and industries.
