The HiLASE Centre is delighted to be a part of ReMade@ARI (REcycable MAterials DEvelopmemt at Analytical Research Infrastructures).
The European Union’s Circular Economy Action Plan is based on the assumption that up to 80 percent of a product’s environmental impact is determined during the design phase. The aim of the European research infrastructure project ReMade@ARI is to foster a comprehensive approach to sustainable production and products: it commits to leverage the development of innovative, sustainable materials for key components in the most diverse sectors, such as electronics, batteries, vehicles, construction, packaging, plastics, textiles and food on an unprecedented level. In order to meet the challenge of designing new materials that are both competitively functional and highly recyclable, the potential of more than 50 analytical research infrastructures of the European ARIE network will be harnessed.
ReMade@ARI starts on September 1, 2022, under the leadership of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR). Among other partners, these three large-scale user facilities are involved: the Ion Beam Center (IBC), the Dresden High Magnetic Field Laboratory (HLD) and the positron source at the positron beamline of the ELBE Center for High-Power Radiation Sources (pELBE).
The HiLASE Centre will provide trans-national open access to its laser infrastructure focused on development of new materials for circular industries, and provide training program for researchers and developers from industry in this emerging field.
