Article
High-performance Permanent Magnets (PMs), both as sintered metal and bonded metal-polymer, are necessary for modern industry. PMs using Rare Earth Elements (REEs) for wind power generation provide efficiency and power density. As a drawback, REEs are critical due to cost, environmental and social impacts related to their production. Component optim...
Article
Demand for urban mobility continue to be on the rise and the changing landscape has profound repercussions on a varied range of issues as well as health, safety, water, transport and energy consumption. For this reason, to achieve sustainable urbanization, cities must generate better employment opportunities, expand the necessary infrastructure, en...

The use of so called Rare Earth Elements (REEs) for the production of permanent magnets (PMs) is increasing worldwide due to the needs of numerous industrial sectors. REEs are described in literature as critical materials due to the uncertainties related to cost instability and due to the potential environmental and social impact associated to thei...

Sustainability is a critical issue for the automotive industry, making that car manufacturers have to address also environmental issues additionally to the traditional ones. Within this context, many research and industry activities have been concentrated in the field of lightweighting through the development of innovative materials and manufacturi...
Article
Nowadays, lightweight materials and design is one of the means carmakers employ to reduce CO2 emissions according to EU's goals and sustainability principles. In this paper, a comparative analysis between alternative design solutions for Electric Vehicles (EVs) components was carried out using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Life Cycle Costing (LCC...

Lightweight design and electrified powertrain have become important strategies in the automotive industry to reduce fuel demand and break down emissions respectively. Lightweighting of Electric Vehicles (EVs) is considered a step forward because advantages of both EVs and lightweight design could be combined to reduce environmental impacts even fur...
Conference Paper
In past years the European Union (EU) set targets to reduce emis-sions in order to encourage and develop a more sustainable society. As a conse-quence of this carmakers began to study new materials and innovative technol-ogies in order to lightweight their vehicles, thus reducing use stage fuel con-sumption and environmental impact. A promising str...
Conference Paper
In order to encourage and develop a more sustainable society, the European Union (EU) set targets to drastically decrease greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. For this reason, it will be necessary a reduction of emissions especially from the transportation sector. Electric vehicles (EVs) are the most promising technology for drastically reducing the e...
Conference Paper

SPEAR is the acronym for the European research project Seismic PErformance Assessment and Rehabilitation of existing buildings, and the SPEAR building is the three-storey replica of an existing non-seismic building, full-scale tested at the ELSA Laboratory. In previous studies, a practical cost-benefits analysis was used to compare the performance...

Project
The project goal is to reduce the use of Rare Earth Elements (REE), and Co and Ga (CRM), in Wind Turbine Generators (WTG) through the development of: a) new concept of bonded NdFeB magnets able to substitute the present state-of-the-art sintered magnets for WT, and b) new recycling techniques for these CRM from the future and current Permanent Magnets (PM) wastes. In this way, the EU external demand of REE and CRM for PM in WTG will be reduced in a 50% (thanks to a strong reduction of the REE (Dy and Nd) and CRM (Co and Ga) needed to manufacture NEOHIRE PM for WT and to a high supply-chain based on reuse).
