The project is led by Professor Jason Hallett (Department of Chemical Engineering) and has a cross-faculty team of researchers with a broad range of expertise, including:

  • polymer synthesis and catalysis
  • chemical and biocatalytic recycling of polymers
  • renewable composite design and engineering
  • mechanical characterisation and micromechanical modelling of blends and composites
  • optimization of adhesion and composites recycling
  • plastic degradation in biological systems

and also diverse aspects of the circular economy, including:

  • manufacturing and process development from waste design of sustainable materials, products and systems
  • social and policy innovations needed to drive waste prevention.
