She is renowned for pioneering the high temperature transformation of waste in the production of a new generation of ‘green materials.’ In 2018 Veena launched the world’s first e-waste microfactory, and in 2019 she launched her plastics microfactory – a recycling technology breakthrough.
Join us for an evening talk with Prof. Veena Sahajwalla as she gives us an insight into her ground-breaking work.
