Future Continuous Manufacturing and Advanced Crystallisation Research Hub

Our Hub research is driven by the societal need to produce medicines and materials for modern living through novel manufacturing processes. The vision is to quickly and reliably design a process to manufacture a given material into the ideal particle using an efficient continuous process, and ensure its effective delivery to the consumer.

The adoption of continuous manufacturing for medicines and materials has application in a range of sectors, including pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals, dyes & pigments, energy and food & drink.
