Centre for the Circular Chemical Economy
NECEM researcher, Dr Elizabeth Gibson will lead engagement for the National Interdisciplinary Centre for the Circular Chemical Economy.
Led by Loughborough University, this centre aims to reduce the fossil reliance of the UK’s £32 billion chemical industry by creating and implementing methods to recover and reuse olefins from end-of-life products and CO2 emissions.
The £4.3m UKRI centre aims to improve the sustainability of the UK’s chemical industry. The centre will play pivotal role in Government plans to improve the sustainability of the UK chemical and construction industries.
