Biochar can boost crop yields in poor soils and help stop the effects of climate change, study finds. So why aren’t we using it more?
3D printers may one day become a permanent fixture of the operating theatre after UNSW scientists showed they could print bone-like structures containing living cells.
The serendipitous discovery of a rust-proof ultra-light alloy in a UNSW laboratory could lead to improved fuel efficiency in transport vehicles and greatly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.
UNSW researchers have created an ‘instruction manual’ for developing metallic glass – an ultra-tough yet flexible alloy described as the most significant materials science innovation since plastic.
A new program to inspire young women to pursue degrees and careers in science and technology – led by UNSW’s Scientia Professor Veena Sahajwalla – has been launched in Canberra.
Veena Sahajwalla has become the first Australian to deliver the global iron and steel industry's most prestigious lecture, outlining the industry's role in solving the world’s growing waste problems.
UNSW has secured funding for one of six new Australia-China Joint Research Centres, designed to meet the many challenges facing the minerals, metallurgy and materials industries in both countries.
Professor Veena Sahajwalla has been recognised as "one of the world's leading innovators in the field of sustainable materials use".
Two UNSW-developed technologies have been recognised with Collaborative Innovation Awards at the Cooperative Research Centres Association conference in Adelaide this week.
Increased sustainability in steel production could result from a new research agreement signed by one of the world's top steel producers and four Australian universities.
