Clean, bio-based manufacturing processes for "every-day" chemical products using waste materials (e.g. food waste, agricultural by-products, waste plastic and carbon dioxide). New biocatalysts, using tools from synthetic biology. Innovative bioprocesses, by adopting clean processing techniques from chemicals manufacturing and using them in biological culture systems and enzyme-based processes.

Professor Stephens' work using enzymes to clean up chewing gum has been featured in The Times, the Observer and on BBC Radio Ulster.
