Chemical Engineering and Allied Processes Research Centre (CEAP-RC)
CHEMICAL ENGINEERING AND ALLIED PROCESSES RESEARCH CENTRE (CEAP-RC)
CEAP-RC undertakes industrial research in process development; plant design, optimization and scale, industry processing aids, bioactives compounds and polymers, cosmetics, nutraceuticals, agrichemicals (bio pesticides, bio-fertilisers, feeds/emerging feed sources), biofuels, pharmaceuticals (extract actives) and phytochemistry. Our task is to develop processes and value added-products from basic chemicals, specialty chemicals and consumer chemicals, that are responsive to sustainable manufacturing and support transfer technologies to industry. The future research areas are projected to include nanotechnology, biomass conversion to polymers for use as speciality chemicals, computational fluid dynamics modelling, catalysis, cosmetic science, feed science, chemical toxicology and e-waste material recovery.
