The Environmental and Process Systems Research Group studies sustainable development questions in the process industries, and explores the use of process and systems engineering skills and tools to solve environmental problems in development contexts. This includes efforts towards a circular economy running on renewable energy, clean efficient production with minimal impact on air and water, better waste management, recycling and a diverse biosphere protected for the future.
The research group seeks to achieve its goals by:
Training the next generation of academics, researchers and top end consultants through PhD and MSc research
Generating and publishing new knowledge through critical research and scholarship;
Questioning unsustainable practices and supporting sustainable development in the real world, by making our knowledge and research products accessible and adoptable.
