The group is awarded £965k to develop smart sustainable packaging.

We are really excited to have been awarded £965k by the NERC to provide the necessary technological advancements to take forward the use of post-consumer recycled (PCR) resin, which can be made by recycling High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), one of the most common plastics used in packaging. The other academic members of the team on this project are Dr Tom Hasell, Dr Frédéric Blanc and Dr Andy McLauchlin, Dr Vitaliy Kurlin, Professor Andrew Lyons, Dr Gopalakrishnan Narayanamurthy and Professor Mike Shaver at the University of Manchester.
