A carbon capture technology firm has been awarded £2 million funding from Innovate UK’s Sustainable Innovation Fund.
CCm Technologies’s tech can accelerate emissions reduction efforts in some of the hardest sectors to decarbonise like agriculture.
The funding will enable CCm to develop new modular units that will accelerate emission-producing industries’ ability to capture CO2 and produce zero carbon fertilisers.
CCm will collaborate with the UK’s pioneering Advanced Thermal Conversion (ATC) lead, KEW Technology, to maximise value for both technologies in terms of sustainability and carbon abatement.
The mobile and highly adaptable technology will allow the CCUS units to operate onsite enabling the integration of CCUS technologies in the waste and fertiliser industries.
Pawel Kisielewski, CEO of CCm Technologies, commented: “We are delighted to have been awarded this contract from government. This will now allow us to demonstrate the technology at industrial scale in this rapidly growing biochar sector.
“It is great to see the government showing support for innovative solutions that are key to reaching the UK net zero target.”
Kevin Chown, COO of KEW Technology, said: “We are very excited to be working with CCm Technologies on this Innovate UK project.
“This is a brilliant opportunity for the UK to showcase itself as a leader in net zero and for us to demonstrate the role that technologies such as Advanced Thermal Conversion can have in achieving this and fuelling a world beyond fossil fuels.”
