Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Georgia have been granted $749,997 by the National Science Foundation as part of its Convergence Accelerator programme to develop a more circular economy in Pittsburgh and Atlanta. The project, called “A Tale of Two Cities: Optimizing Circularity from Molecules to the Built Environment”, will examine all levels of circularity, from the molecular level up to the built environment. The goal is to develop a model that could be translated to other locations throughout the U.S. and globally, with the potential to scale to thousands of cities. Read more.
