About us

Founded in 2008 by ARC Laureate Fellow Scientia Professor Veena Sahajwalla, the Centre for Sustainable Materials Research and Technology (SMaRT) at the University of New South Wales works with industry, global research partners, not-for-profits, local, state and federal governments, on the development of innovative environmental solutions for the world’s biggest waste challenges.

Based out of the Faculty of Science, the SMaRT Centre brings together researchers from the faculties of Science, Engineering, and the Built Environment. The centre has 30 personnel, state-of-the-art furnaces and laboratories, and sophisticated analytical and processing equipment. Combining the distinctive research capabilities of UNSW's academics, the SMaRT Centre has a track record of delivering research and technology suitable for rapid implementation.

The core aims of the SMaRT Centre are to develop novel research for sustainable materials and manufacturing processes, build industry partnerships to activate research for real world impact, and to disseminate green materials and manufacturing technologies that benefit industries, local communities, and enhance sustainable economic growth internationally.
