Biorenewables Development Centre

February 25th, 2014 | 11:06 am

The Biorenewables Development Centre (BDC) has launched a new capital grants scheme.

The BDC are a not for profit organisation set up to address the various issues within the Biorenewables industry including feedstock issues, conversion processes and uses for waste by-products. The team is made up of commercial and scientific professionals and has supported a range of businesses to take their technology and processes to the next stage. Their clients have ranged from small start-ups to established businesses.

The BDC have recently received approval and funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) to launch the Biorenewable Capital Grants Scheme (BCGS). The scheme is designed to support Yorkshire based small and medium sized enterprises which are working with Biorenewable materials. Funding is intended to contribute towards the purchase of pilot-scale production equipment to test proof of concept; before committing to full scale development. Applicants can apply for up to 64% of total project capital costs so long as total capital costs do not exceed £50,000. This means that up to £32,000 of funding is available for businesses.

This type of funding is invaluable for those looking to find uses for waste-by products and solutions to feedstock issues such as anaerobic digestion and biomass developers.
