Professor Veena Sahajwalla at the Sustainable Futures Festival
September 11 @ 10:20 am – 12:30 pm
Award-winning scientist, engineer and the NSW Australian of the Year, Professor Veena Sahajwalla has invented technologies for converting waste into products like steel and ceramics. In 2018, Veena launched the world’s first e-waste micro-factory and the following year, a plastics micro-factory.
Veena’s industry-integrated research program has resulted in a world-first, patented process called Polymer Injection Technology for recycling end-of-life plastics and rubber in electric arc furnace steel making, resulting in the production of so-called ‘Green Steel’.
Veena has delivered keynote addresses at many prestigious research conferences around the world and has published more than 250 refereed papers in leading publications in her field.
