Professor Veena Sahajwalla directs the Centre for Sustainable Materials Research and Technology (SMaRT) at UNSW Australia, delivering scientific and engineering advances in sustainability of materials and associated processes in collaboration with industry.
Veena is revolutionising recycling science to enable global industries to safely utilise toxic and complex wastes as low-cost alternatives to virgin raw materials and fossil fuels. As Founding Director of UNSW’s Centre for Sustainable Materials Research and Technology, Veena and her team are working closely with industry partners to deliver the new science, processes and technologies that will drive the redirection of many of the world’s most challenging waste streams away from landfills and back into production; simultaneously reducing costs to alleviating pressures on the environment.
