For chemical-based industries to respond to global challenges, we need to improve productivity and maintain the competitiveness of our manufacturing processes.
It is crucial for the UK to adopt newer, more intensive process technologies that are scalable, flexible and tolerant to alternative feedstocks. Enhancing capabilities will also need the adoption of advanced digital solutions that utilise the right data to increase productivity.
Innovate UK KTN can support organisations in connecting across sectors and capabilities to meet these new business needs. We will also encourage the development and adoption of processes for synthesis and catalysis that offer commercial advantages, and help increase adoption of techno-economic, whole-system approaches to optimised solutions.
