Loughborough Leads Zero Carbon Loss Biomanufacturing Project
A Loughborough University-led project within the UKRI Interdisciplinary Centre for Circular Chemical Economy aims to develop a sustainable biomanufacturing system with integrated carbon capture and utilisation through a novel electrochemical approach.
Centre Director, Professor Jin Xuan discussed with The Engineer that the UK chemical manufacturing sector has an annual turnover of £32bn, but is also one of the top emitting sectors of CO2.
“If we can develop a net zero emission manufacturing system, that will contribute a lot to the UK’s economic success,” Xuan said. “Also, the biomanufacturing sector itself represents a huge opportunity for clean growth.”
