The TFI Network+ 'Blue skies, green future' webinar series presents ideas to spark discussion on the topic of transformation and innovation within the foundation industries.

This session will be a presentation from Professor Mark Rainforth on the impact of alloy design on sustainability and resource efficiency within the metals sector. Prof. Rainforth is a MAPP Investigator.

Designing Alloys for Resource Efficiency (DARE) was a multi-million-pound research project funded by the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to improve the technical competitiveness of UK metal industries.

This talk will take examples from a wide range of metal alloys, including ultra-high-strength, low alloy and nanostructured steel, titanium alloys and magnesium alloys.
