Research Grants & Projects

Development of models for material stock and flow analysis toward advanced recycling of scarce alloying elements
Project Year: Apr 2019 - Mar 2022
Material/substance flow analysis of multiple substances for efficient recycling of steel scrap and alloying elements
Project Year: Apr 2015 - Mar 2018
While steel scrap is characterized by a high rate of recycling, alloying elements in steel are not necessarily utilized effectively. In order to promote effective utilization of alloying elements, we developed a new mathematical model of material/...
Waste Input-Output Analysis of the Dynamic Path of the Use and Dissipation of Metal Resources and the Associated GHG Emissions
Project Year: Apr 2010 - Mar 2013
Recycling is vital for sustainable management of metal resources. While closed-loop recycling is desirable, open loop recycling is more common due to the mixing of different metal-species in the end of life process. This is associated with losses ...
