New fund launched to attract UK students in AD and energy-from-waste sectors.
The Energy from Waste Innovation Fund is open to undergraduate and postgraduate university students in the UK completing a dissertation related to EfW or renewable energy technology and engineering.
The winner will receive a prize-fund of £1,000 (€1,120), with the two runners up receiving £750 (€840) each upon completion of their research, as well as 12 months of mentoring with the award founder, Privilege Finance.
Chris Winward, Privilege’s commercial director, said: “We’re keen to support new talent in the renewables and EfW sectors. With a growing focus on developing the UK’s circular economy, new and existing technologies that use waste materials to generate a sustainable source of energy, will become ever more important.
“To make sure the UK is at the forefront of this technology, we need to encourage, attract and retain fresh talent.”
