Material science discovery

Asynt reports how the Rannard Group at the Materials Innovation Factory, University of Liverpool (UK), uses new technologies supplied by the company to help improve the environmental impact and reduce water and electrical consumption within their materials science discovery laboratories.

The Materials Innovation Factory (MIF), a partnership between Unilever and the University of Liverpool (UK), combines knowledge leadership in materials chemistry, multi-disciplinary research expertise, facilities and dynamic support infrastructure.

A video interview with Professor Steve Rannard’s research group at the MIF facility describes the positive ‘green’ impact obtained by the researchers utilising Asynt’s sustainable laboratory equipment

Rannard commented: ‘Increasingly we are judged, not only on our ability to undertake advanced material science research and formulation, but also to do this is an environmentally sustainable manner. Our investment with Asynt has certainly enabled us to lower the carbon footprint of the group’s MIF laboratories.’
