Urban Mining towards Environmental and Resource Sustainability

Xianlai Zeng

Associate Professor at Tsinghua University and Fulbright Scholar at Yale University

Time: March 26, 2019 @ 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM
Location: ISE Lab 467

An increasingly multitude of underground mineral resources are being
transferred into products and waste, which in turn can be an anthropogenic resource
or urban mineral. Urban mining has been recognized as an important solution for
environmental and resource sustainability. This talk will involve many disciplines
covering environmental science and engineering, industrial ecology, green
chemistry, sustainability science, and earth science. The urban mining story on what,
why, how, and next direction from science and technology to policy and industry
will be addressed in detail. The seminar presentation will take around one hour.
