Julian Allwood is Professor of Engineering and the Environment at the University of Cambridge. He worked for 10 years for Alcoa, prior to developing an academic career, initially at Imperial College, and from 2000 in Cambridge. In parallel with developing new manufacturing technologies for metals, he has built up a research group looking at environmental systems and production. From 2009-13 he held an EPSRC Leadership Fellowship, to explore ‘material efficiency’ as a climate mitigation strategy – delivering material services with less new material. This led to publication in 2012 of the book “Sustainable Materials: with both eyes open” which can be read online here, listed by Bill Gates as one of his top six reads of 2015. A revised edition “Sustainable Materials: without the hot air” has now been released.

Professor Allwood has produced the following report, which can be read as background to the seminar: A Bright Future for UK Steel.
