CircularChem is another circular economy centre from the NICER Programme, which Met4Tech sits within.
Katie’s research is focussed on developing evidence-based policies for the implementation of a circular economy in the chemical industries across the UK.
Using her knowledge and experience of practical green chemistry, Katie’s research involves evaluating the performance of competing technology pathways and devising new evidence-based policy instruments to stimulate supply, demand and investment in sustainable chemicals.
The work at the NICER Programme’s CircularChem Hub involves liaising with universities, industrial partners, stakeholders, and the UK Government. Katie is also concentrating on ensuring social justice is maintained in policies, whilst promoting public awareness and knowledge towards the social acceptance of a chemical circular economy.
Katie’s talk will discuss her research aims and goals as well as give an overview of her research progress.
