Loughborough University & TPG

TPG is currently involved as the Industrial Partner on a one year EPSRC funded ‘Proof of Concept’ project with Loughborough University (LU), supporting the development and trialling of a new software tool to support the application of Bio-polymers within industry, particularly in the packaging sector. Lead researcher in sustainable manufacturing at LU, James Colwill  stated that this development will help ensure that biopolymers are used in those applications where the greatest environmental, social and economic benefits can be achieved across the whole lifecycle, and within the constraints of current capacity and infrastructure limitations. The tool supports the decision making process, both vertically and horizontally within the business, providing strategic, tactical and operational support and guidance.
