The mission of the CoE is to foster and encourage ground-breaking collaborations between University researchers working at the frontiers of knowledge to carry out world-leading research that could assist SCG in meeting their strategic objectives. 


We have five strategic research themes: Circular EconomyCarbon Dioxide ManagementGreen HydrogenLow Carbon Feedstocks, and Materials for Environmental Sustainability
