Covestro teams up with Tsinghua University on CMF design of recycled materials

June 08 2021

While the circular economy is gaining importance and more efficient recycling technologies are being developed, there has been a lack of methods to optimize the use of recycled materials in terms of aesthetics and function. That's why materials manufacturer Covestro is joining forces with the Colour & Imaging Institute, Art & Science Research Center at the renowned Tsinghua University in Beijing to develop a study on sustainable materials from the perspective of color, material and finish (CMF). The two partners made the announcement at the start of the Design Shanghai 2021 exhibition, June 3-6.

The goal of the research project is to jointly develop solutions for an aesthetic, design-based identity of recycled materials. The empirical project is based on research findings, designs and experiments. It aims to integrate aesthetic CMF design into Covestro's more sustainable polycarbonate material portfolio and promote a design approach that brings together aesthetic and circular design.
