Waste to Wealth: Opportunities in the Circular Economy

Date: 14th June 2019
Location: University of St Andrews

Jointly hosted by the Centre for Innovation & Energy Storage (CIES), Zero Waste Scotland, ScotCHEM, IBioIC and ETP. This workshop will explore how materials science can be used to rescue a variety of waste materials which can then either be reused in a different format or used to produce something even more valuable.

The Centre for Innovation in Energy Storage (CIES) will bring together academia and industry to address one of the world’s most important technology challenges; the efficient storage of renewable energy.  The aim of CIES is to establish transformational collaboration between universities and businesses. CIES presents a unique opportunity that will address both Scottish Government’s Energy Strategy and priorities and the UK’s Industrial Strategy.

The workshop offers the opportunity to:

  • Discover new capabilities, network and build new collaborations.
  • Learn about funding opportunities.
  • Discuss how recycling and resource recovery can help Scotland meet its energy targets.

More info and how to register can be found on the website.
