Reviving Waste - Veena Sahajwalla
Reviving waste is a term that might make you stop and say, "Wait, What?" When something becomes waste, it is often sent to a landfill, where it then slowly, if at all, decomposes. Veena Sahajwalla is in the business of giving waste a second life. Products like tires, cellphones, refrigerators, that are often written off as a challenge to recycle, are precisely the products this professor is interested in. Veena believes looking at the elements that make up a product is the future of better recycling.
