C-Tech Innovation is leading an urban air quality project with partners Cheshire West and Chester Council and the University of Chester, funded by Innovate UK. This project is titled InterCityAir and aims to test the feasibility of developing an integrated data platform for Chester city centre to monitor and ameliorate poor air quality in real time.
The Sustainable Treatment Of Waste Using Recycled Chitosans (STOWURC) project is developing sustainable materials and processes that use waste products from the seafood industry to treat waste streams and recover metals from the printed circuit board (PCB) and related industries.
Wear2 is a process for microwave textile disassembly, making it easy to debrand corporate clothing, remove labels from end-of-season stock, and prepare textiles like clothing, car seats and mattresses for recycling. The lack of effective disassembly technologies and absence of design protocols for handling clothing at end-of-life have, until now, acted as a barrier to a profitable, sustainable clothing operation.
