ORIGEN WINS FUNDING FOR TATE & LYLE DEEP DECARBONISATION STUDY

24TH MAY 2021

We’re excited to announce that Origen has been awarded two grants by the UK Government’s Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS).

The first is a £768k collaboration with Tate & Lyle Sugars and Cranfield University to carry out a study of deep decarbonisation of the Thames Refinery site in London. The project will undertake a front-end engineering design (FEED) study on a process to reduce the site’s GHG emissions by 90%. The technology can be deployed at sugar refineries globally and has the potential to yield carbon-negative sugar. In addition, the study will assess the application of the solution to other industries such as cement, steel and power generation, as well as carbon dioxide removal from the air.

The second is a £221k project to explore the use of lime to remove carbon dioxide from the air. Origen will build on its partnership with Singleton Birch Limited where we are developing a technology to produce zero-carbon lime – lime with no emissions of carbon dioxide into the air.
