Ultimately, the success of any recycling program depends on creating markets for the recycled material, and therein we find much of the accomplishments of materials engineering in the last quarter-century. Recycle/reuse of the automobile is one of the most visible and most complex of these stories. A discarded car, sent to a junkyard, is first denuded of reusable components, then crushed, shredded, and separated. Approximately 75% by weight is recycled. The remainder, known as “fluff,” is treated as waste and buried in landfills.
Data limitations include proprietary ownership and lack of accurate, materials-specific information, but the most significant uncertainties in LCA arise from options in the attribution of environmental burden between the original materials producers and the ultimate users. This attribution, in turn, depends on assumptions regarding anticipated recycling prospects. 16), Clark et al. describe a technique they dub “product stream life-cycle inventory” for quantifying this allocation. Most importantly, this approach allows the analyst to consider the sensitivity of results to assumptions.
We must make our meetings the technical home for the results of R&D in the Industries of the Futures Program. Materials Flow Data. The collective action of the federal government has been of benefit to industry and the citizenry in yet another technical arena of relevance to this discussion: the area of information. Many organizations within government assemble, organize, and disperse information of a technical nature. Most visible to us as scientists and engineers has been evaluated technical data such as thermodynamic, crystallographic, or materials properties, which allows the scientific enterprise to proceed with common basis for quantification.
