Engineering Sustainability
Watching a junked school bus being fed
into a mammoth hammer mill, which
loudly pummeled the bus into fragments
of metal, rubber, and plastic, was
a sight I'll always remember. I was visiting
Huron Valley Metals, a major scrapyard
and recycling facility near Detroit,
during reporting for an article on automotive
recycling. Seeing that big yellow
bus chomped up, with practically 100%
of its steel, iron and aluminum content
collected for reuse, made clear to me
the importance of recyclability and materials
choice in product design.
But a glance at the refuse and recycling
containers awaiting curbside pickup
in my small town - all
headed for the landfill - reveals
how little the public
knows, and cares, about
product end-use. A lack of
ready markets plays a role
in what currently gets
tossed. So does a hodgepodge
infrastructure with
myriad definitions and rules. Partly as a
result, the U.S. plastics recycling rate is
just 5%, according to the Dept. of
Energy. Effective materials recycling
gets far less attention than tailpipe
emissions but is equally deserving of
industry focus.

use out of all that is manufactured. For
SAE readers, " sustainable " means developing
products, methods, and systems
efficiently, aiming for zero waste and
environmental impact. Businesses, often
under pressure from investors, regulators,
and customers, now are making
sustainability integral to their guiding
principles. Their suppliers are being required
to follow suit; witness the
Greenhouse Gas Protocol's new Scope 3
GHG emissions standard that will impact
companies at all tiers.

Giulio Ornella, VP of global
engineering at Dana Corp.
told me recently. He sees
Scope 3 as " a huge opportunity "
for Dana. In a separate
interview Andreas Wolf,
CEO of powertrain Tier 1
Vitesco, concurred.

This month's cover feature on EV battery
recycling, by veteran environmental
reporter Jim Motavalli, details the
global enterprise that's emerging, at
scale, and the opportunities and challenges
involved. We also look at innovative
" zipper " technology, developed
by U.K.-based In2Tec, for reclaiming
nearly all the high-value components
on discarded PCBs.
Sustainability is the buzzword du-jour.
In some corners it's hyperbole; at others
it's a mission. I define it simply as living

ized across the academic and industry
landscapes. Stanford University recently
launched its Doerr School of
Sustainability; MIT has its Sloan
Initiative. In business, chief sustainability
officer (CSO) is the hottest new
management seat. Fortune 500 companies
hired more CSOs in 2020 than in
the previous three years combined. SAE
International is on board, launching its
Office of Sustainable Energy to help
industry tackle complexities in this area.
The bandwagon is rolling, but my jaundiced
eye sees looming controversy as
well as benefits. Nuclear power, for example,
was deemed " unsustainable " after
various reactor accidents. Today, however,
" nukes " are widely being reconsidered
as a key to meeting net-zero carbon
targets. And fossil fuels keep the lights
and heat on when renewables can't deliver.
Unexpected externalities have a
way of turning ideals into compromise.
