Dundee businesses to benefit from Abertay carbon reduction scheme

19 April 2013

A new project aimed at reducing carbon emissions in Scotland will launch at the University of Abertay Dundee this Wednesday (April 24).

“Mainstreaming Innovation” will be a chance for local businesses to find out how they can make better use of resources, close energy loops, be more energy efficient, reduce the need for maintenance, and minimise costs.

It will also be a chance for businesses to find out about the expertise on offer at the university and how they can take advantage of it to ensure they are able to contribute to the government’s new low carbon agenda.

Areas in which Abertay specialises include:

  • landscaping and biodiversity
  • energy efficiency in existing buildings
  • energy generation from renewables
  • water harvesting, saving, recycling and flood prevention
  • waste reduction, waste re-use and energy creation from waste

“Mainstreaming Innovation” is a one-year project delivered by a consortium of nine Scottish universities, led by Glasgow Caledonian University.

Abertay University is proud to be a partner, and will be building on work already undertaken in various projects, particularly the ERDF-funded Low Carbon Networks for Business (LoCal-Net) project.

The event is free, but booking is essential. For more information and to book a place, please register here.
