Cardiff University and University of Manchester – turning waste into fuel

Cardiff University and the University of Manchester are partnering with BP and Johnson Matthey in a £9m project that aims to convert CO2, waste and sustainable biomass into clean and sustainable fuels and products that can be used across the energy and transportation sectors. The project is one of eight business-led Prosperity Partnerships announced in the Innovation Strategy. Cardiff University is an internationally-leading centre for catalysis research, and the University of Manchester will provide expertise in materials science, characterisation methods and catalysis. They are joined by BP, which is transitioning from an international oil company to an integrated energy company, and Johnson Matthey, a global leader in sustainable technologies. The partnership will devote the next five years to exploring new catalyst technology to help towards net zero.
