Plastics: Redefining Single-Use 

Plastics: Redefining Single-Use is a multidisciplinary research project announced by the UK Science Minister. With £1 million from UKRI we have created a team of world-class experts. Together with the Grantham Centre they will redefine single-use plastic.

Single-use plastic is a waste of limited natural resources. But health-care, industry and agriculture all currently rely on it. We need to tackle the plastic problem from all angles, because it is so complex.

So we have created a diverse project team. We have gathered business leaders, policy-makers and other experts. They will work with Grantham Centre staff to redefine single-use plastic.

Through a focus on Life Cycle Analysis we will avoid unintended consequences. For example, solving a problem at one end of the plastic life cycle only to have it pop up elsewhere.
