Description

Research priorities in biomass pre-treatment technologies

Background:

RCUK plans to invest £5M in 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 the University of Manchester 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.
