Yorkshire businesses urged to apply for AD funding
The funding is being awarded through the Anaerobic Digestion and Circular Economy Yorkshire (ADCEY) project, the Biorenewables Development Centre (BDC) and the University of York.
A total of 31 fully-funded AD projects are available to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across the Leeds City Region, York, North Yorkshire, and East Riding.
Companies can access the expertise and state-of-the-art scale-up and analytical facilities of the BDC and of Professor James Chong’s research group at the University of York for help in researching or developing AD Innovations.
“This support will help de-risk innovation by SMEs and enable the region’s AD industry to thrive and grow and to make the most of feedstocks from the region’s agriculture and the food and drink sectors,” said Dr Joe Ross, director at the BDC.
Professor Chong added: “The AD industry makes a vital contribution by increasing our resource efficiency and reducing our carbon emissions. By supporting innovation in AD, we can boost both the region’s economy and its sustainability.”
