Material Innovation and Degradation

Our research comprehensively explores materials throughout their lifecycles, assessing both sustainable and unsustainable aspects.

Our researchers actively develop novel materials and methods prioritising environmental responsibility. This innovative approach is complemented by rigorous materials testing, aiming to identify materials meeting functional requirements without compromising environmental integrity - a crucial aspect of our commitment to providing alternative and sustainable material solutions.

This exploration extends to degradation processes, where we analyse the intricate mechanisms of environmental degradation, including legacy plastics. Our assessment aligns with material innovation research, aiming to develop alternatives that completely degrade into harmless matter without posing environmental risks.
