The work reported in this paper discusses the importance of glass and metallic glasses as environmen- tal friendly materials and also provide some points of view about the future inﬂuenceof these materials for the related ﬁeldsof industrial engineering and industrial ecology.The environmental capabilities of metallic glasses (MGs),which are consider ed to be among the impo rtant materials of the future,have not been sufﬁcientlyinvestigated.However,some aspects have yet to be done:the biocompatibility of most MGs,obtaining valuable MGs from waste materials,using MGs in green energy applications (solarcells and hydrogen production),using MGs in catalyst systems,as well as the possibility for using MGs in systems for retention and puriﬁcationof dangerous pollutants and in the nuclear industry
