Former MPhil students involved in a study on closed loop value chains

last modified Feb 01, 2016 02:38 PM

Two 2010-2011 ESD alumni, Paul Cassell and Alexandra Pearson, and guest ESD lecturer, Ian Ellison, are amongst the co-authors of a circular economy case study published this week. The case study explores the lessons learnt from the REALCAR closed loop value chain project between Jaguar Land Rover, Novelis, Innovate UK and partners, in the creation of new materials and production systems to introduce closed-loop aluminium into Jaguar Land Rover cars.

 

The study was undertaken and authored by a group of employees from Jaguar Land Rover, which included Alex and Paul, and Novelis whilst attending the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainable Value Chains (PCSVC) where Ian Ellison is a Senior Associate.
