Welcome to the E&PSE research group
Clean air, a society running on renewable energy, clean efficient production, recycling of resources after use, a diverse biosphere protected for the future: these are some of our aims. As a small research group in Africa’s most successful university-based Chemical Engineering department, we contribute to these aims by:
- Training the next generation of academics, researchers and top end consultants through PhD and MSc research;
- Generating and publishing new knowledge through critical research and scholarship;
- Questioning unsustainable practices and supporting sustainable development in the real world, by making our knowledge and research products accessible and adoptable.
The University of Cape Town and the National Cleaner Production Centre of South Africa are hosting the Southern African Regional Coordination Centre (SARCC) for the LCA activities of the SRI project component A.
