The new Institute for Sustainability will focus on sustainable chemical technologies and sustainable systems.
Institute for Sustainability
Science and Technology Driven Sustainability
Following the launch of our new Institute, we reflect upon our most significant achievements in 2022.
Every year, the Institute for Sustainability (formerly CSCT) hosts a showcase to explore the latest developments in sustainable science and engineering.
Bath chemists have been awarded funding on two £1.5 million national projects on monitoring and improving water quality.
From innovation centres working directly with industry to bring products to market and decarbonise industry, to real-time monitoring of chemical reactions and improvement of membranes, our projects are interdisciplinary in nature, crossing traditional boundaries between science and engineering to develop new sustainable technologies.
We design molecules, materials and manufacturing processes to enable a circular economy and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and take a whole-systems perspective to measuring and embedding sustainability in decision making, using methods from industrial ecology to understand the full environmental footprint of our products and activities.Read more about our research
