Mind Your Engineered Metal
AM2T mission is to be part of a circular economy. Together with fellow thinkers and activists, group is on the forefront of rethinking design, manufacturing practices and education in order to restore the earth as we produce more and more products that use finite natural resources.
Sustainability is ensuring that generations to come have the same privileges that we do.
If you really want to make an impact in materials and manufacturing you need to focus on reducing waste and designing/manufacturing for disassembly, recovery and reuse.
The solution requires three things:
"How do we create value out of waste? Metals are not renewable; however, they certainly are recoverable, reusable and recyclable. Most products made and consumed today are hybrid monsters that cannot be disassembled, easy fixed, easily recycled. Whose responsibility is it to put the finite elements we are using in products back where we found them?"
There are nine technologies reshaping manufacturing and production today. You can read about them by exploring the concept button below. We propose to respond to our new industrial reality with a multi-tiered paradigm for engineering education that will help the industrial sector secure talent while meeting the sustainability needs of our future.
