Renewable energy innovators are on a mission

Sixteen ‘clean technology’ companies are to take part in the ‘Clean and Cool Mission 2015’ initiative from Innovate UK to promote the best of British.

The project, the fifth of its kind, involves a week-long visit to San Francisco. The 64 companies involved in the four previous missions secured more than £500m in investment.

Three of the current crop of 16 involve waste applications. They are:

  • ADFerTech – anaerobic digestion technology converts digestate into fertiliser while avoiding expensive wastewater treatment
  • Green Fuels Research – a patented process enables biodiesel producers to upgrade existing facilities to produce bio-aviation fuel
  • NGB – fast-working technology which turns biodegradable feedstock into biogas six times faster than competitor products, recovering up to 30% more biogas

Kevin Baughan, director of technology and innovation at Innovate UK, said: “With San Francisco at the heart of the cleantech ecosystem in the US, the Clean and Cool Mission is a fantastic opportunity for UK businesses to showcase their innovative technologies and identify growth opportunities.”

The latest Clean and Cool Mission is taking place from 17-24 January and is organised by Innovate UK, The Long Run Venture, UK Trade and Investment and CoSpA. Those on the trip are seen below (Photo credit: James O Jenkins)
