Nellie Technologies is excited to announce that they have received funding from AberInnovation’s Solutions Catalyst Programme, a fund that is organised by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and with support from Aberystwyth University and AberInnovation.
Dr Rebecca Charnock, Industrial Research Development Manager at AberInnovation said:
“We are delighted to provide industry with the opportunity to easily access world-class academic expertise and facilities through the new Solutions Catalyst programme. This voucher competition funded by the BBSRC will enable the successful companies to create, trial and test innovative solutions to societal challenges with the full support of Aberystwyth University academics and a specialist technical team at AberInnovation.”
The Solutions Catalyst Programme offers valuable access to R&D for cleantech projects in mid-Wales. Stephen Milburn, founder and CEO of Nellie comments:
“The access to the world-class staff, skills and facilities at AberInnovation and Aberystwyth University that the Solutions Catalyst provides will directly enable a critical piece of research in our route to offering the most complete direct air and point source carbon capture product to the market.”
Nellie will be working alongside academics and experts at the BBSRC, Aberystwyth University, and AberInnovation and will be using the elite facilities at AberInnovation to test novel additives to optimise algal growth speed and maximise the efficiency of the organic bioreactor for carbon capture as well as explore new filtration systems for the carbon capture units.
“We’re thrilled to be working with the BBSRC and AberInnovation to accelerate our innovation journey” says Milburn, “Evolutionary biotechnology is at the heart of our carbon capture technology and this support for our continued R&D is essential in developing, protecting and exploiting our game-changing climate tech here in the UK.”
Climate change mitigation is the driving motivation at Nellie Technologies and the experts at the BBSRC, Aberystwyth University, and AberInnovation share the same passion for innovation and climate mitigation.
