Developing sustainable consumption and production patterns means collaboration across and among disciplines. Researchers and professionals from chemistry, materials science, engineering, applied physics, and more will need to build on each other’s work to develop new materials that can be reused, remanufactured, recycled, or recovered; all while minimising hazardous waste and greenhouse gas emissions. Materials science researchers have published a wealth of SDG-related research aimed at addressing these urgent issues. And to maximise their impact, they’ve chosen to publish it with Springer Nature. Here you’ll find a hand-picked selection of that research gathered on this page, published under many of our imprints, including Springer, Nature, and BMC; and from our society partners including the MRS, TMS, ASM, and others.
