Johnson Matthey in triple collaboration
Royston-based Johnson Matthey, the chemicals specialist, is partnering with Rolls-Royce and Fuel Cell firm, Ceres Power, as part of a government-backed programme to deliver innovations in sustainable power generation and supply.
The programme will help identify long-term solutions to meet the needs of UK industrial and domestic consumers.
The DTI-sponsored ‘SuperGen’ programme comprises four consortia of research institutions working in tandem with industry to examine wave and tidal power, future network technologies, hydrogen energy and bioenergy.
A particular focus is microgeneration, and Ceres and its partners will help stimulate and manage fuel cell research from top UK public laboratories. By participating in the programme, the industry consortium partners will have the right to guide over 50 man-years of world-class fuel cell research.
