Contract Description:

The University of Manchester wishes to purchase gas permeability equipment for testing permeability of films, predominantly polymer films. This scientific equipment will be housed within the sustainable materials innovation hub at the University of Manchester. The SMIH will support small to medium businesses from across the whole of Greater Manchester to find sustainable innovations to waste management and more sustainable plastics. It will achieve this by bringing together material science expertise and business intelligence to offer a defined workflow of 'Advice,' 'Assess' and 'Innovate' to understand where businesses can make efficiencies, realise opportunities and avoid unintended consequences in their plastics management. This equipment will be housed in one of three interlinking laboratories supporting the capability to characterise, synthesise and process polymers, facilitating innovation in new sustainable polymers, improved methods of recycling and validation of emerging sustainable materials that appear on the market.

The Royce equipment fund is part financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) funds having been awarded under the 2014-2020 Priority Axis 1: Sustainable Plastic Innovation in Greater Manchester (OC15R19P 0903)
