Jobannonce: PhD scholarship in Circular construction materials

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet PhD scholarship in Circular construction materials

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet, Kgs. Lyngby

Do you want to deepen existing knowledge on how construction materials circular practices can mitigate climate change? Then DTU Environmental and Resource Engineering offers you the ideal PhD position to work on a urgent and concrete application of circular economy (CE) in the construction sector: the reuse/repurpose/recycling of end-of-life (EOL) windmill rotor blades. The position will be instrumental in accomplishing a newly funded EU IA project that aims to propose different circular uses of these blades and iprove the sustainability of Wind Energy.

Your research tasks include conceptualizing different uses for the EOL windmill blades as resource for the construction, laboratory work to characterize the newly developed construction materials, and evaluation of circularity in terms of LCA.
