The challenge of engineers towards sustainability is to promote zero manufacturing waste, develop molecules that are not persistent, toxic and bio-accumulative as well as to have no hazardous manufacturing processes. These goals typically result in common practices among engineers to design new processes and products and to upgrade the existing ones satisfying the three aspects of sustainability i.e. economic development, environmental protection and societal goods. Examples for design of materials for sustainable solutions will be presented in this paper. Porous TiO2 with high surface area presents environmentally-friendly product that purifi ed water. Powder technology was employed in this investigation to design material with controlled porosity where titania oxides transform into non stehiometric Magnelly phases. Silicate based wastes, like coal combustion ash, slag from
