Case Study

Tata Steel Thermal Technology Centre

£5m project to nurture the high temperature skills base of the UK, and offer a viable resource for companies and research organisations working with or developing high temperature technologies.

The India-based Tata group has over 90 operating companies across seven business sectors in over 80 countries and six continents. Tata Steel and CPI have recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to build a High Temperature Innovation Centre on Teesside. The £5m project will nurture the high temperature skills base of the UK, and offer a viable resource for companies and research organisations working with or developing high temperature technologies.

  • It is a natural partnership for Tata RD&T to work with CPI to create a national high temperature process centre, given the proven track record both have in successfully developing and implementing new technologies. Our aim is to work with other industries and companies in the field of high temperature process technology, increasing the pace of knowledge and capability development, and thereby bringing additional benefit to our own activities.

Achievements

The India-based Tata group has over 90 operating companies across seven business sectors in over 80 countries and six continents. Tata Steel is one of the largest steel manufacturers in the world and has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with CPI to build a High Temperature Innovation Centre on Teesside. The £5m project will nurture the high temperature skills base of the UK, and offer a viable resource for companies and research organisations working with or developing high temperature technologies. Under the MoU CPI will create an open access innovation and research facility centred on two new pilot plants which are to be installed at Tata Steel’s Teesside Technology Centre site. The new plants will extend the existing capabilities of the site to carry out research and development work in the fields of novel sources of fuel and energy, the recovery of raw materials and reductions in the amounts of organic wastes produced. The equipment to be installed comprises a 350kg pyrolysis oven and 2-metre diameter fully flexible gassifier.
