Knowledge and collaboration for a sustainable world

The core task of Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development (GMV) is to create and facilitate cooperation, between and within Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg, with an aim to generate and practically implement knowledge about sustainable development. In order to develop solutions to global challenges, GMV brings academic disciplines together to create new knowledge. Moreover, practical implementation of knowledge requires collaboration between academia and other actors in society. To this end, GMV creates meeting places and brings together different types of expertise in order to promote sustainable development within research, education and cooperation.

  • All plastic waste could be recycled into new plastic

    [21 Oct 2019] A research group at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, has developed an efficient process for breaking down any plastic waste to a molecular level. The resulting gases can then be transformed back into new plastics ¿ of the same quality as the original. The new process could transform today's plastic factories into recycling refineries, within the framework of their existing infrastructure.

  • The life of microplastics in the ocean to be mapped

    [21 Oct 2019] Microplastics in the ocean is a growing global problem. Researchers in the Division of Fluid Dynamics at the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences has received 2 million SEK to study the transport pattern of microplastics in the sea. The long-term goal of the project is to gain a deeper understanding of the impact microplastics have on the marine environment.
