Low Carbon Energy

Low Carbon Energy

Decarbonisation of the major energy intensive sectors of industry, such as steel, chemicals and food, is proving to be incredibly challenging.

The Materials Processing Institute has extensive experience in energy efficiency for industrial processes, industrial symbiosis and energy recovery. More recently the role of hydrogen in the future economy has been identified as a potential solution and the Institute is deploying its unique, demonstration scale research assets to this challenge.

The capability of the Institute campus to offer ‘plug and play’ facilities for large scale technology testing can rapidly accelerate and de-risk the introduction of technology solutions in this fast-growing area.
