Research and innovation
Research in the School of Chemical and Process Engineering takes a multi-disciplinary and modern approach to Chemical Engineering, integrating world-leading analytical infrastructure and state-of-the-art physical science.
The breadth of our capabilities allows us to take a true ‘atoms-to-products’ approach to process engineering and design, with impact across virtually all industrial sectors, including oil-and-gas, renewable energy integration, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, consumer products, foods and feeds, advanced materials and devices, and environmental protection.
We collaborate globally with academic institutions and multinational companies in the electronics, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, food and feed and packaging sectors.
Within the University of Leeds, we collaborate extensively across engineering, chemistry, physics, biology, medicine, dentistry and design. We also have strong links with Energy Leeds, the Institute of Process Research and Development, the Bragg Centre for Materials Research and the Sir Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials.
Our research is funded by research councils, industry and charities both in the UK and overseas.
