The Purpose of this Role

The North East of England Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC) and Teesside University have been awarded a grant by Innovate UK to investigate the production of sustainable olefins, which are essential building blocks within the chemical industry. Sustainable olefins refer to chemicals used in manufacture and processing, but whose source is not derived from petrochemicals. Engagement with a range of stakeholders will be required to assess feedstock, process, and economic viability of new opportunities, resulting in the production of a detailed strategic roadmap, to determine routes to olefin production within Teesside.
