SUSTAIN Future Manufacturing Research Hub

SUSTAIN Future Manufacturing Research Hub

  • Stand Stand D36

Changing the face of the UK steel making industry.

The SUSTAIN project aims to deliver cutting edge science and the engineering research required to create carbon neutral, resource-efficient UK steel supply chains.

The SUSTAIN Future Manufacturing Research Hub is a £35M project core funded by £10M of EPSRC funds over 7 years. The project is led by Swansea University, with spokes at the Universities of Sheffield and Warwick and partners the five largest steel producers in the UK.

We can enable UK manufacturing sectors to deliver world-leading resilient solutions for tomorrow’s transport, energy and building needs, whilst overcoming societal waste and energy challenges. With this we can bring high-value jobs and prosperity to the UK.


  • Academic Leadership for Steel – nucleus for broad multidisciplinary collaboration and influence the UK research agenda for steel

  • 21st Century Workforce – Innovation cannot be divorced from skills training, our outreach program aims to influence policy and set agenda for future skills and generate exemplary content

  • Carbon Neutrality and Zero Waste – This is the number one techno-economic challenge, we must create and commercialise solutions, influence policy and opportunities for circular economy with supply chain

  • Smart Processes for Smart Products – Carbon neutrality can provide the freedom to operate and determine the future success and competitiveness of an operation


  • To develop systems for carbon neutral iron and steelmaking by 2040

  • To double steel GVA by 2030

  • To implement world-leading intelligent infrastructure by 2030
