University part of multimillion pound research hub to develop enzyme-based plastic recycling

A new research hub, the first of its kind in the UK, is being formed to develop and optimise the enzyme-based technologies for plastic recycling and material recovery.

By expanding our enzyme platform, we will establish technologically viable and environmentally friendly pathways for plastic waste deconstruction and recycling, thereby contributing to the development of a circular plastic economy.
