HOW I GOT HERE
Q & A - Olivia Sweeney
As a chemical engineer at cosmetics company Lush, Olivia Sweeney is discovering new, more sustainable sources of fragrance ingredients.
3D printing with a bite
Dental labs are increasingly adopting additive manufacturing to create dental implants. The technique can reproduce the complex three-dimensional geometries needed for such implants.
Detecting landmines for a safer world
Professor Anthony Peyton and David Daniels CBE
Accuracy, affordability and ease of use are key factors in the technologies needed in humanitarian demining. Developments in technology are meeting these requirements to ensure that the process is as efficient as possible.
Processing the plastic problem
Geoff Watts and Adrian Haworth
Chemical engineering is enabling waste plastics to be recycled and converted to oil and wax products that can be further refined and used in several applications, including fuel and high-grade plastics.
Graphene's material promise
First discovered in 2004, graphene’s unique properties mean it has the potential to be used in a variety of ways,from electronics to energy storage. However, it is yet to have a significant commercial breakthrough.
MacRobert Award 2018
