The Federal Institute of Material Science and Technology EMPA commissioned the Professorship Dirk E. Hebel and the Werner Sobek Group Stuttgart to build a NEST Unit in Dübendorf with the theme “Urban Mining”. “Resource shortages, greenhouse gas emissions, polluted drinking water and much more are all symptomatic of a throw-away mentality in a society that produces more waste by the day and scatters it in the environment. The Urban Mining unit tackles this mindset head-on and sees waste as a goldmine of new materials.” More information  here.
