Plastics are widely used in automotive industry to manufacture light weight and fuel efficient cars. Dr Philip Hall’s novel technology to recycle plastics for the use in car parts has given another life for the used plastics.
Dr Hall’s research has helped a local car manufacturer in Ningbo to make car parts using recycled plastics, saving the cost for car manufactures, and more importantly, reducing fuel consumptions and greenhouse emissions.
Dr Philip Hall’s research focuses on the use of recycled plastic in manufacturing, waste electrical and electronic equipment recycling, specifically Lithium Ion Batteries. His various projects, including the development and application of recycled polymeric composites for marine applications, are contributing to different UN SDGs.
