Circular economy for materials processing

CEMP is a project-based introductory course to the circular economy. The goals and the learning outcomes of the course are to provide overview knowledge on circular economy for materials processing through lecturing (first part of the course) and in-depth knowledge and skills by the project work (second part of the course). After the course the students would be able to understand:1. Basic concepts of circular economy, knowledge on materials flow (from mining, processing, manufacturing until end-of-life recycling and re-usage), issues and drivers for a changes.2. Recognize impacts (environmental, economic and social) of the current practice of materials processing from a sustainability aspect.3. Create new business opportunities to re-enter materials into circular economy.4. Apply processing technologies to accelerate the implementation in business creation.

Engineering properties of materials

The course introduces the students to the description of the most important physical properties of engineering materials, with particular attention to the description of the methodological aspects to evaluate their performances. After an introduction on the possible approaches for materials selection and on the statistical methods for the evaluation of their engineering properties, the course focuses on the description and on the evaluation strategies of the most relevant physical properties, such as: mechanical, rheological, thermal and electrical properties. Moreover, the main techniques for structural, microstructural and surface analysis of the materials will be presented with emphasis on experimental setup and information available from the experiments. Some selected examples about applications in materials engineering and structure-properties relations will be discussed. After completing the course, the student will be able to:- apply engineering and statistical approaches to select the most suitable material for a specific application- collect, analyze and present experimental data and draw some valid conclusions out of them- select suitable testing techniques to determine the main physical properties of engineering materials- to model the main physical properties of engineering materials (rheological, mechanical, thermal, electrical)- to establish the reliability and correctness of materials properties dataset available in the technical and scientific literature even in relation to the existing technical regulations (ISO and ASTM standard)- to recognize the main aspects, the experimental information provided and the suitability of each characterization technique.

Laboratorio di tecnologie delle materie plastiche

The course introduces students to the most important manufacturing techniques of plastic materials, giving them competences on the selection of the transformation processes and of the relative technological parameters as a function of the thermophysical properties of the different materials. At the end of the course it is expected that students are able to :- Reach a detailed knowledge of the different transformation technologies of plastics, and of the correlation between processing parameters and the resulting technological properties.- Distinguish the different plastic products on the basis of their technological properties and of the production process utilized for their development.- Know the different equipment necessary for the transformation of plastics, with the setting of the relative process parameters.- Propose the most suitable technological process for the realization of plastic products, with the selection of the processing parameters. - On the basis of the introduced theoretical concepts, carry out experimental activities working in group.- Present in an exhaustive way the experimental results through oral presentations and a technical report.

Recycling and sustainable materials

This course is focused on materials and the environment: the eco-aspects of their production, their use, and their disposal at end of life. It is also about ways to choose and design with them in ways that minimize the impact they have on the environment.After an introduction on the main technical, economical and social aspects regarding a “sustainable development”, the course will focus on the analysis of the most promising materials for an eco-sustainable development. The attention will be mainly focused on biopolymers, wood, wood-polymer composites, natural fibre composites and insulating materials.The end-of first life options for engineering materials will be presented along with the methodologies for “life cycle assessment” (LCA).After completing the course, the student will be able to:- assess the sustainable development of a given articulation following a rigorous procedure;- select an eco-sustainable material on the basis of its property profile and interaction with the environment;- measure the main properties of biopolymers and wood-related materials according to the relevant standards;- design a component taking the most suitable end-of-first-life options into proper account ;- design a life cycle assessment analysis on a practical case.
