Sustainable Industrial Systems is a research group at The University of Manchester led by Professor Adisa Azapagic.
The main aim of our research is to help identify sustainable solutions for industrial systems on a life cycle basis, taking into account economic, environmental and social aspects. We work across different sectors and supply chains including chemicals, construction, food & drink, energy and transport. In addition to industrial organisations, we collaborate with government, NGO and other organisations.
We specialise in the following areas:
The group is funded by UK Research Councils, the European Commission and industry.

Professor Azapagic gave a plenary talk at the 9th World Congress of Chemical Engineering in Korea
