Description: This resource is a 10 minute excerpt from a web seminar with Mike Ashby (February 2011) and it describes a case study that can be used to introduce sustainability concepts to introductory level students. It is based on the "Eco-Selection and the Eco Audit Tool" lecture. This video is part of a set created by Mike Ashby to help introduce students to materials, processes and rational selection. Granta's Teaching Resources Website aims to support teaching of materials-related courses in Engineering, Science and Design. The resources come in various formats and are primarily aimed at undergraduate students.
