Action plan launch: transform industrial waste gases to chemicals

Innovate UK is delighted to share the “innovation action plan to transform industrial waste gases to chemicals’’

Following consultation with the wider community it has identified five key challenges for industrial clusters and dispersed sites and are now seeking partners to work collaborative to:

  1. Investigate and generate new circular and sustainable business models across supply chains that should establish the economic, environmental and social case for manufacturing in the UK
  2. Determine the economic, technical and environmental capabilities of existing and emerging carbon capture and chemical transformation technologies to drive increased investment in collaborative projects 
  3. Create a policy, regulatory and standards environment that drives behavioural change and to make long term investment attractive.

This action plan aims to develop a clear and consistent message that demonstrates the importance of creating a circular, sustainable and net zero chemical sector by adopting a circular economy framework. More details on this webpage.
