Is the World becoming a Better Place?

12 March

“Geology in your pocket – the secret life of a smartphone”

Popular science lecture by Jessika Luth Richter (Doctoral student at the IIIEE). The talk will focus on the different materials in our phones and relate them to geology, for example how they are formed and how they are mined. Jessika will also talk about how we can mine more sustainable and how we can avoid primary mining by “urban mining” the materials from our phones and other products to make new products.
