Event description

Description

This new Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) competition is seeking innovative solutions to design an energy powered bioprocessing system. This system is envisaged to recycle waste oil, fuel and other liquid wastes using microbes, in order to capture the by-products into reusable products.

Large volumes of waste are generated across the Ministry of Defence (MOD) Estate and are currently disposed of by external waste management companies.

In this £1.35 million competition, DASA is seeking proposals to allow MOD to manage and reduce its own waste on-site, and to recycle the by-products.

The following are key areas where efficiencies are required:

  1. Develop a prototype bio-processing system to break down the waste into its natural by-products.
  2. Develop the most effective microbes, microbe mixes or non-microbial agents, to optimise growth environments to achieve this breakdown for different waste products.
  3. Identify the recycling potential of the by-products to prove that there is a market and use for them.

Are you a company working in any of the above commercial areas? Would you be interested in discussing your ideas, technologies and solutions?

If the answer is “Yes” then our upcoming Industry Day event could be of interest to you.

At the event, delegates will:

  • get a chance to see the context of the challenges upfront with support from the actual end users
  • hear first-hand the challenges the RAF wishes to find a solution to
  • have the opportunity to offer/discuss both viable products and conceptual capabilities requiring funding
  • receive a general briefing on the concept and vision of this project and the commercial approach adopted

Register your interest to attend.

To help understand the problem space and to facilitate opportunities for collaboration, an event will be held at RAF Brize Norton on 25 September 2019. If you would like participate in this event, please register now and save the date.

The deadline for registering your interest is 1800 on 18 September 2019.

Please note that if the event is oversubscribed, we will have to limit the number attending from a single organisation.
