The Science Bridge Project consists of 4 work packages, each one focussed on meeting the aims and objectives of the project.
To assess the scope for using wasteland and wastewater resources to cultivate energy crops in selected areas of the UK and India and to implement phytoremediation at 4 sites in India.
To implement an
intermediate pyrolysis-CHP plant in the UK, reduce its manufacturing
cost through redesign and supply chain management, thus proving the
concept for the UK and India alike.
To improve and implement in rural
India a tri-generation unit using a biomass-fired boiler and steam
turbine, to transfer the unit to microenterprises in India, and to
undertake preliminary technology transfer of this small-scale
steam-based technology to the UK.
To implement in India a hybrid solar-biomass energy plant using a steam turbine.
