We have a vast amount of experience in managing national and international projects as well smaller one to one projects for our pre-funded support programmes aimed at regional SMEs. From pulling together a team of experts, setting objectives, managing budgets and timescales, our team project manages the whole process - from start to finish.
We are a partner in two Hydrogen BECCS (Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage) Innovation Programme projects which has been funded by the Net Zero Innovation Portfolio (NZIP) that have been awarded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). For one of these projects, H2-Boost we are the project manager. Led by the University of Leeds, other partners include Greenthread Solutions, NNFCC and Aardvark EM.
Previously we were the project management partner for the Newton Babba project, which brought UK and India scientists together to take a major by-product of the sugarcane industry and turn it into the valuable bio-based chemical, citric acid. This £1.8 million project, sponsored by the Newton Bhabha Fund, brought together academics along with UK and Indian companies to work in partnership to reduce industrial waste and generate innovation in industrial biotechnology. The Newton-Bhabha Fund is a programme funded by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, both part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), as well as the Department for Biotechnology (DBT) India.
“We are delighted to be part of these phase one projects and work with academic and industry partners to explore how low carbon hydrogen technologies can offer potential solutions for decarbonising the UK transport sector and contribute towards the UK’s net-zero goals.” Joe Ross, Director, BDC
