RICE (Reducing Industrial Carbon Emissions)

Project description

RICE is led by the Energy Safety Research Institute (ESRI) at Swansea University, in partnership with Sustainable Environment Research Centre (SERC) and University of South Wales.

Its goal is to test how CO2 produced from heavy industrial processes can be innovatively used to make high value products and industrially important chemicals. Technologies will also explore the production of green hydrogen, which can be used in many ways to reduce our carbon footprint.

It aims to deliver transformational change through the translation of innovative processes to reduce Wales’ CO emissions and decrease consumption of energy & raw material by heavy industry.

Geographical coverage

The project will benefit the West Wales and the Valleys programme area, predominantly in the South West.
