Ehsan Vahidi, the John N. Butler Endowed Professor in Extractive Metallurgy, has been named an affiliate editor of the open up-obtain journal, Frontiers in Sustainable Source Administration. Vahidi’s investigate crosses the common boundaries involving metallurgical engineering and sustainability science. He has printed impactful exploration on greenhouse fuel mitigation methods in the U.S. building sector, the function of building resources in greenhouse fuel emissions, and internet-zero possibilities in the mining and recycling of crucial minerals.
Frontiers is an open-accessibility publisher of peer-reviewed journals in around 900 educational disciplines. Frontiers in Sustainable Source Management focuses on the human use of all-natural means and publications cover matters associated to pure resources, sustainable land use, sustainable components, intelligent know-how, sustainable plan, and squander management. The journal integrates earth and natural sciences with engineering, technology, and company and social responsibility. As affiliate editor, Vahidi is instrumental to the start of the new journal.
“With an awesome editorial group, this new open-entry journal will assist shape the potential of sustainable materials and minerals,” Vahidi reported.
In 2022, the multinational accounting and auditing agency KPMG named environmental, social, and governance (ESG) concerns as the biggest danger to business in the Worldwide Mining Outlook report, outranking the price of the products and solutions they provide and entry to talent, for the initial time in the 12-yr heritage of risks and opportunities research. Vahidi’s appointment and the publication of the new journal occur at a important time.
“The publication of this journal is a terrific opportunity to develop our sustainable economic system,” Govt Vice President and Provost Jeffrey Thompson said. “Vahidi’s appointment is a recognition of his impactful exploration in the region of sustainable useful resource administration, and I glance forward to reviewing his contributions as associate editor.”
Vahidi was recruited to the Mackay College of Earth Sciences and Engineering in 2020 with the offer of his named placement, the John N. Butler Endowed Professorship in Extractive Metallurgy. The named professorship was established in 1986 with a gift from the estate of metallurgy professor John Butler, who served as chair of the Chemical and Metallurgical Engineering and Mining Engineering Departments.
