[edit] Thesis

Titled: "The use of life-cycle analysis to reduce the environmen​tal impact of materials in manufactur​ing"

Objective: Look at ways to improve manufacturing from a life cycle analysis perspective.

Sub Topics:

Topic 1: Life cycle analysis of semiconductor recycling in thin film photovoltaic manufacturing

  • Specifically Silane recycling in the a-Si:H process
  • Paper submitted for review


Topic 2: Life cycle analysis of distributed manufacturing vs. centralized manufacturing of plastic products

3 Products:


Topic 3: Distributed recycling of post-consumer plastic waste in rural areas
