The Centre for Sustainable Technologies undertakes multidisciplinary research
to design, create, develop, improve, demonstrate and evaluate emerging, existing
and alternative sustainable renewable energy, building design, construction
materials, transport and environmental modification technologies.
The Centre for Sustainable Technologies is a partner in the BioMara, Sustainable Fuels from Marine Biomass project.
BioMara, the Sustainable Fuels from Marine Biomass project, is a €6 million joint UK and Irish initiative that aims to demonstrate the feasibility and viability of producing biofuel from marine algae. With the European Parliament calling for 10% of road transport fuel to come from renewable sources by 2020, sustainable, industrial-scale biofuel production has become an urgent challenge.
