We are currently witnessing an increasingly important role of computational materials research in industry. Three main factors are enabling this development, (i) the remarkable progress in computational methods, (ii) the availability of enormous computing power, and (iii) the development of sophisticated software environments for materials modelling. Together, these capabilities are providing unprecedented opportunities for industrial research. This lecture will illustrate the deployment of these computational approaches in solving problems in “green electronics”, irradiation effects in Zr alloys, Li-ion batteries, polymers, and CO2 capture. These examples demonstrate that computational materials research is thus making increasingly valuable contributions to sustainable and environmentally responsible technologies.
