Theme and Scope

Symposium theme and scope

Our future prosperity is related to sustainable production of manufactured goods and consumption of resources.  The depletion of natural resources, rising greenhouse gas emissions with consumption of energy and materials require careful considerations for future uses of energy and materials. The demand for materials used to create buildings, infrastructure, equipment and products is expected to double in the next 40 years.
