Sustainable Materials

Sustainable material products include novel acoustic and thermal insulation materials made from recycled polymers, elastomeric residues, thin film coating applications and smart incorporation of recyclates into conventional products for a lower carbon footprint.

We have undertaken research into advanced materials in fuel cells with a number of commercial partners, and with a world leading Chinese partner in obtaining bioengineered elsatomers from biomass which resulted in non-crystalline polyesters outperforming all other elastomers.  Along with our Centre for Pharmaceutical Engineering Science, we are also working with a leading chemical engineering institute in India on solvent-free pharmaceuticals processing, exploiting hot-melt technology and process structuring for co-cystallisation of drugs for enhanced bioavailability.
