Unsustainable patterns of consumption and production have had a detrimental effect on the world. An increase in carbon emissions from the manufacturing industry, coupled with a decrease in available raw materials has forced us to re-think across all sectors. By changing our manufacturing processes and the materials used, we can make a significant difference.
The UN Sustainable Development Goals promote sustainable industrialisation through consumption and production patterns. Our research will help in addressing these challenges.
We’re developing remotely controlled robots for on-wing engine maintenance, investigating how to use microwave technology to recycle acrylics, exploring the use of 3D printing for multi-material electronic devices and much more.
