Sustainable Materials for Engineering Applications

Naqvi, Shenela, Naveed, Nida, Ahmed Siddiqui, Afshan and Afshan, Amber (2021) Sustainable Materials for Engineering Applications. In: 1st International Conference on Advances in Material Sciences and Environmental Engineering, 21-23 June 2021, NED University Of Engineering & Technology, Pakistan.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


The fastest growing thread of climate change has roused the world to take some pragmatic actions to protect natural world heritage. United Nations take a significant step to address this serious issue and establish the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development for people, planet and prosperity, and set 17 goals which all countries have to act upon for sustainable development. One of the goals is sustainable consumption and production. In the current situation, it is crucial to take it into account in all fields of engineering for existing and new developments. All engineering products need to be designed in a way that they can be recycled and lead to zero waste to minimise their environmental impact and truly assist the cradle-to-cradle approach. In this paper, the potential use of sustainable materials for industries that can be processed and recycled to convert into the value-added products are discussed. This discussion is facilitated by overviewing the published papers related to sustainable material selections for different engineering applications.
