Supporting Industrial Bioenergy Deployment: Waste, Heat & Power

Tuesday 3rd of October, 12:30 – 16:30, Manchester.

Supporting industrial bioenergy deployment: Research needs in waste, heat & power


RCUK plans to invest £5Min a multi-disciplinary Supergen bioenergy hub to act as a focal point for UK bioenergy research. The hub will connect academia with industrial and policy stakeholders to focus on sustainable bioenergy development.

Prof. Patricia Thornley from Aston University has been appointed to lead the hub and is currently carrying out a consultation to establish the research priorities that the new hub will address and identify appropriate research partners and stakeholders.

If you would like to get involved in helping shape this exciting new opportunity you would be very welcome to attend this consultation event.

Aim of the event:

This workshop will focus on the challenges faced in deployment of biomass, waste, heat and power plants and how the research community can support more mature technologies through the deployment phase. Representatives for trade associations and industry bodies would be particularly welcome at this event.
