The Bioeconomy Cluster Builder (BCB) is collaborating with Innovate UK KTN’s Circular Economy Innovation Network to bring you this event on transforming waste gases into chemicals.

Carbon dioxide is the major contributor to greenhouse gases responsible for the ongoing climate challenge, with industries producing emissions directly from the manufacturing processes, fuel combustion as well as indirectly from electricity usage. However, there are innovative solutions to reduce the amount of CO2 emitted to the environment and use this feedstock to produce higher value, low carbon footprint chemicals which reduces our reliance on fossil based feedstocks.

About the network

The Circular Economy Innovation Network has brought together a community from across the value chain to create a Circular Innovation Action Plan for the Carbon Capture and Utilisation (CCU) of industrial waste gases to chemicals. In this webinar we will share the Action Plan that has been created to help accelerate innovation in this important area and showcase some of the latest innovations and projects using industrial waste gases.

About the event

The webinar will run from 10am – 12:15pm with a further online networking opportunity via the Meeting Mojo platform between 1:00pm – 4:30pm.

About the Bioeconomy Cluster Builder

The Bioeconomy Cluster Builder (BCB) is a three-year collaboration between the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC), Innovate UK KTN and Scottish Enterprise. The project aims to grow the Scottish bioeconomy by raising awareness of the applications and benefits of biotechnology and by supporting the development of new value chains and markets for bio-based products.

Using the extensive networks and knowledge of the three partner organisations, we connect the right people and resources to deliver innovation support and signposting to funding opportunities. To find out more about the project and our planned activities, or to get involved, please visit our website here.
