Welcome to SMART

The Centre for Sustainable Manufacturing and Recycling Technologies (SMART) is a research and development centre at Loughborough University in the UK. The SMART team works to develop new strategies, tools, and technologies that encourage sustainable growth in the manufacturing industry by enabling companies to meet legislative, environmental and ethical standards whilst safeguarding their future prosperity.

The team has core expertise and knowledge in life cycle analysis, sustainable design, resource and energy efficient manufacturing, end of life processing of products, and sustainable consumption and business models that are key enablers for achieving transformational change.

The Centre is always keen to discuss possible opportunities for collaboration. If you have any enquiries, please contact us for more information.
