The Sustainable Materials Innovation Hub (SMI Hub) works with SMEs across Greater Manchester to create trusted sustainability solutions with plastics.

Led by the Henry Royce Institute for advanced materials and the University of Manchester, the SMI Hub is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund and has been established to improve the understanding, use, and consumption of plastics across the region.

We use our extensive knowledge of materials and sustainability to offer free advice to organisations looking to make a change and support them with assessment facilities to develop innovative solutions.
