With world leaders committed to meeting the climate change reduction targets set out in the Paris Agreement, it is now widely accepted that finding novel solutions to protecting our environment, and minimising the negative effect of industrial activity on world climate, are the most important issues facing the future of industry and the long term prosperity of humanity.
Technology is the key to unlocking a sustainable future, and CPI can help academic and industrial organisations of all sizes to commercialise innovative technologies with the potential to revolutionise the environment and water sector. Our world class open access facilities and expertise across a range of technology platforms can be utilised by our partners to scale up, demonstrate and prove viable, green, low carbon solutions, for the benefit of the wider environment.
CPI is an expert in industrial biotechnology with unique gas fermentation and anaerobic digestion laboratory facilities. We are engaged in facilitating the development by our partners of second generation biofuels which can be produced without negatively affecting food supplies or using fresh water and arable land resources. These sustainable biochemical or biosynthetic alternative energy sources can be readily integrated into the existing supply chain without the need for large scale infrastructure reform by blending with current fuels.
Alternative energy sources can be explored by working with CPI to develop processes for the creation of high value bio-products such as fuels, plastics, chemicals and materials from waste streams as diverse as industrial waste, supermarket food and sewage sludge.
Having amassed a wealth of experience in bidding for public funding and managing resulting publically funded projects, CPI is ideally positioned to partner with companies or research institutions to help them access Government incentives for the development of greener energy sources.
