If you have a question about this talk, please contact Andrew Morris.

Processing materials in a circular economy tends to occur via either pyro- or solvo- techniques each of which have specific advantages and disadvantages. This talk discusses the use of Deep Eutectic Solvents which are ionic liquid analogues and have been used to study the extraction of metals from minerals and the recycling of metals from complex waste streams. The talk also encompasses methods to modify polymers to make plastics from biomaterials which can be used for biodegradable binders for materials as diverse as fibreboard and batteries.

This talk is part of the School of Metallurgy and Materials Colloquia series.
