Queen's University Polymer Processing Research Centre (PPRC)
Over 20 years of research in various aspects of polymers, including processing and analytical facilities.
Research staff in the Centre work side by side with industrial and academic partners from across the world in developing new processes and innovative products and provide input to the implementation of new technologies. From brainstorming new ideas for projects to developing entire new processes right through extensive pilot plant trials before ultimately implementing these new developments into full scale production plants.
In addition to undertaking industrially relevant research and development into new polymeric materials and processes, the Centre has a central supporting role to much of the more strategic and longer term polymer research undertaken in the Advanced Materials & Processing Research Cluster at Queen’s University. It also combines a variety of functions from training research staff, students and industrial personnel, to working directly on commercially relevant problems.
The range of services offered include the following:
• Process design and assessment
• Process troubleshooting
• Analytical services
• Co-development partnerships
• Education and Training
