Environmental Sustainability

At the core of “sustainability” is the notion of creating technologies, products and processes that advance economic development without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Featured Projects: Environmental Sustainability

Sustainable Development of Critical Earth Materials

Investigator: Mary Poulton

Institution: University of Arizona

Program: SRG

Award: $8,794,522   Term: 48 Months

Copper has always been an important resource for the state of Arizona and AZ scientists, in partnership with Freeport-McMoRan, Resolution Copper and 14 other mining companies are making mining safer, more productive, and environmentally friendlier for the sake of AZ’s economy and AZ’s communities.

Environmental and Economic Impacts of Material Used in Future Urban Development

Investigator: James Crittenden

Institution: Arizona State University

Program: CAA

Award: $399,280   Term: 18 Months

With better understanding of  how and why we choose one material over another when constructing new buildings,  human population growth in the Valley of the Sun can be sustained in ways that are more economically and environmentally sustainable.

The Sustainability of Innovative Manufacturing for Arizona: Low- Water and Low- Energy Nano- Manufacturing Processes

Investigator: Anthony Muscat

Institution: University of Arizona

Program: SRG

Award: $825,000   Term: 42 Months

By reducing water, energy, and materials necessary to build electronic devices such as cell phones and computers, Arizona will remain a leader in this area. In partnership with Intel, university researchers are using biological molecules to build electronic devices, a breakthrough for reducing production costs leading to large-scale commercial opportunities.
