Descripción de “Technology Metals for a Green Future (FutureLearn)”
Learn how critical raw materials are found and used, and explore their role in contributing to a more sustainable future. Explore the challenges of metal sourcing for modern, low-carbon technologies.
Smartphones, wind turbines, and electric cars are becoming standard features of modern life and are closely linked to a low-carbon, globally connected future. This has increased the demand for greater quantities and variety of metals to build these products, but access to many of them is restricted due to their geological or geopolitical situation.
On this course, you’ll learn how these metals are used, where they come from, and how they’re sourced. You’ll consider ways to cope with the growing demand and explore the ways in which we can achieve sustainable metals stewardship.
