Plastic Recycling Research Cluster

Awarded in 2021 through the UBC Eminence Program by Vice-Principal Research Office, this cluster brings together a multi-disciplinary team of researchers. The cluster is mandated to connect with a large number of pertinent industries, and help local and national government jurisdictions manage plastic waste more systematically, backed up by science. The research team focuses on the entire production supply chain, from plastic waste recovery and re-manufacturing to multi-criteria performance assessment of the final product, including durability, end-of-life design, socio-economic impact analysis, and policy making.
