Novel sustainable biopolymer product and process development
This project has two components:
Product development and characterisation
We will develop a fundamental understanding of product performance characteristics (in terms of mechanical properties and UV degradation), investigate characteristics of existing products of the company partner, and benchmark for comparison with the products being developed.
Sustainable process development
We will develop a process to enable new sustainable polymer development with improved UV stability and fire retardant qualities and set up a research and development laboratory to control the batch making process and testing of new sustainable products.
