Our research is focused on solving the challenges we face today and is grouped into six different themes that overlap and support each other.
Activities in these themes enable our staff and researchers to tackle the four wider quality-of-life challenges; energy, health and well being; sustainability and water.
Explore our research and the specialisms of our academic staff in detail.
Development and analysis of a wide range of advanced functional materials.
The sustainable biological production of a wide range of products using advanced technologies.
Research into heterogeneous catalysis, membranes and separations, porous media and more.
Development and use of modelling and simulation tools to address research challenges.
The design, optimisation and control of chemical and biochemical processes.
Subsurface systems play a critical role in the transition from fossil fuels to sustainable energy.
