It is the goal of the Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling I/UCRC to be the premiere industry-university collaborative dedicated to the sustainable stewardship of our Earth's resources. We will serve collaborative members' needs by establishing the needed knowledge base, and by educating future leaders of the industry. Technologies will be developed and transferred to industry with the goal of achieving materials sustainability from initial product design through manufacture to end-of-life disposition in a manner that yields both energy savings and profitability.
The Mission of the Center for Resource Recovery and Recycling I/UCRC is to collaborate with industry to:
- Establish generic basic recovery and recycling science;
- Develop technologies to identify and separate scrap materials from the waste stream;
- Build strategies and technologies to enable greater scrap utilization within materials processes; and
- Establish materials recovery and recycling curricula that in combination with university research experience will grow an engineering workforce equipped to address the challenge of achieving material sustainability.
