MML joins new initiative to eliminate plastic waste

The MML has won funding as part of a new Centre for Creative Circular Economy Approaches to Eliminate Plastic Waste

This UKRI funded programme starts in early 2019 and establishes the 'Cambridge Centre for Creative Circular Economy Approaches to Eliminate Plastic Waste'. The centre acts as a nucleus for a global network of partners and coordinates a range of Cambridge-based research projects to tackle contemporary challenges from the manufacturing of more sustainable materials to driving innovations in plastic recycling. This 18-month award leads the development of a sustainable plastics economy by understanding the local and global distributions of plastics, innovate alternatives to plastics and develop novel technologies for the utilisation of waste plastics. The Programme supports a series of workshops and a forum, as well as research projects to tackle key challenges to eliminate plastic waste.
