Alt text coming shortly

The University of Oxford is one of multiple partners in the project which brings together engineers and scientists from a wide range of universities and companies. Professor Emilio Martínez-Pañeda, leading the Oxford effort for the Department of Engineering Science, says, “Oxford’s role will be to use advanced computational techniques to establish a new generation of thermo-mechanical separation methods that will enable rubble and concrete separation at minimal energy cost”.

In a 2-year project, the team members will develop low-energy ‘Green Building Materials’ technologies by safely and sustainably upcycling some of the estimated 1.4bn tons of rubble generated during the Russian invasion.
