Transforming Foundation Industries Research & Innovation Hub
This week we hosted a group of delegates from across the foundation industries and those supporting through universities as part of the TransFIRE project. The purpose of the visit was to see how we manufacture our products, whether there were any synergies with other industries and to also share best practices to enable the foundation industries to ‘level up’ and make the improvements they need to remain sustainable.
Areas we are focusing on are waste streams and deciphering if there are higher value in use opportunities for cross industries to utilise another’s waste, this could be anything from heat to spent product. All in the efforts of decarburisation and working towards a Net Zero approach. We also discussed Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, looking at the skills gap in the industry and how we attract tomorrow's generation into the foundation industries.
