Our success with funding and our broad range of research interests allows us to tackle a wide variety of research projects.

We attract multi-million pound funding annually for research into the latest developments in chemistry. Funding comes from UK funding councils (EPSRC, BBSRC), European Union, Government (TSB, WG) and many businesses.

Our expertise, extensive facilities and research infrastructure allow us to successfully tackle the most demanding challenges. Examples include:

Transforming waste into fuel

Our catalysts will help transform plant waste into key chemicals and liquid fuels.

Reducing water consumption

We are developing the catalysts that treat and recycle greywater.
