Newsletter about Sustainable Materials

January 24, 2020

Shaping our future in terms of sustainable technologies, new materials and industrial processes is one of the most important topics of our generation and we are in need of scientific and engineering answers. How can we avoid the use of carbon as energy and reductant carrier in the entire field of materials science and engineering? How can we make better and rare-earth free permanent magnets for electrical vehicles? How can we render alloys sustainable and improve recycling rates? Which are the novel materials that can withstand embrit­tlement caused by hydrogen? And what is the potential of new thermoelectric and so­lar cell absorber materials for green power generation? We have devoted our efforts to provide answers to these pressing ques­tions, showing you in this newsletter edition some of our cur­rent research in the field of sustainability.

You also get latest information on upcoming workshops and conferences and selected publications.

The newsletter is published twice a year. Each edition provides you with information about the recent scientific projects at the MPIE. If you want to subscribe to our newsletter or need more information to specific topics, please write an e-mail to:
