Scientists are acutely aware that the world is counting on them to address our climate future and energy consumption through safer, cleaner, more efficient materials. New approaches, led by materials scientists and engineers at Duke, involve not only fresher versions of conventional materials but new thinking within the design phase. From reducing effects of technologies as they become waste to harnessing solar energy and smart textiles permitting less energy use for heating and cooling, find out how Duke experts are working to inform smarter, more environmentally friendly design of products and technologies.
