Dr Rosa Franca

Research Associate

I’m a Post Doctoral Research Associate in the Sustainable Industrial Systems group based in the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science at The University of Manchester. I’m currently working on the 4CU project in partnership with The University of Sheffield, University College London and Queen’s University Belfast. The project, which is funded by the EPSRC, is developing a comprehensive approach to understand and analyse schemes for converting CO2 to fuels (carbon capture and utilisation).

My main research interest focuses on the application of life cycle thinking to identify environmental, economic and social improvement opportunities that can contribute to the delivery of more sustainable industrial sectors. My research experience encompasses the construction sector and solvent recycling processes.
