Process and manufacturing challenge with P&G and NEPIC: A factory’s first step toward NetZero
How might we help Procter & Gamble’s (P&G’s) R&D centre take the first steps on their decarbonisation journey by supporting the reduction of carbon emissions from existing gas boilers, through innovative engineering solutions?
Tees Valley Business Challenge connects large organisations who have pressing challenges with small businesses and social enterprises who have innovative solutions. These solution developers are then helped through advice, grant funding and new contacts to build, test and commercialise their ideas. We are specifically looking to work with small and medium-sized organisations (for-profit businesses and social enterprises) based in the Tees Valley.
Procter & Gamble (P&G) is a global business with over $76 billion in annual sales. Operating in 180 countries, P&G has a significant presence in the North East of England and a long track record of innovation work in the region. Working with NEPIC, the North East’s process industry cluster, we have identified a challenge held by P&G where there are opportunities for innovative local businesses to get involved.
We are looking for products and services that will help P&G’s R&D centre take the first steps on their decarbonisation journey by supporting the reduction of carbon emissions from existing gas boilers, through innovative engineering solutions.
More details of the challenge will be provided at this event, as well as further information on how we are able to support innovative solution developers (including through significant funding).
The programme is being delivered by Edge Innovation in partnership with Tees Valley Business, the Local Growth Hub for the Tees Valley established by the Tees Valley Combined Authority and Tees Valley Mayor, RTC North, AHSN, Dynamo, NEPIC, VONNE and Teesside University.
