Led by Prof. Michael Shaver in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester, the team works to develop improved catalysts, processes and polymers that are sustainable both economically and environmentally.

This is captured in our Tree of Awesomeness which looks at our diverse inputs and outputs while reminding us that it is all above the process – the sustainability of the transformation of one thing into another. Feel free to explore! You can find more details about our research efforts, our research outputs, our team and how to join (and start drinking the Kool Aid) above or check out our blog posts for an insight into our group (including links to Mike’s Disruptive Innovation Festival show with Google’s Michael Werner, TEDx talk and comedy routine in the YouTube page). Recent posts and tweets are shown to the right and the wonderful people who work in the group are shown below.

The pandemic has been a massive challenge for society, and indeed our group, with countless zoom calls and working across 4 different buildings. We have now finally reunited in the Royce Hub Building (with some shiny new labs!) as part of the Sustainable Materials Innovation Hub continuing to deliver sustainable innovation within our multidisciplinary team.
