Resource Efficiency

Our research in resource efficiency includes enhancing polymer product properties and quality and the re-use of materials, or 'green' processing.  Our world-leading research into process-structure-property relationships in solid phase orientation of polymers has led to exploitation of novel processes and unique enhanced property products, including low density high stiffness polymer composities for building applications and shape memory polymers for cementless soft and hard tissue fixation devices. 

We have done a significant amount of work on advanced materials with enhanced properties for healthcare technologies through the Bradford Science Bridges China and Global Engagements programmes.
