Cambond are pleased to announce they have been shortlisted for the Innovation of the Year 2020 Award by BusinessGreen Leaders at a virtual celebration on 14 October.
BusinessGreen Leaders Awards are the UK’s premier celebration of the UK’s world-leading green economy. When the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards launched in 2011 fossil fuels were the UK’s dominant source of energy and environmental issues were a niche concern for most politicians, businesses, and voters.
Now, thanks to the efforts of companies the awards have recognised over the years, low carbon technologies dominate the UK grid, environmentalism has captured the zeitgeist, and the UK has become the first major economy to set itself on a course to achieving net zero emissions.
These awards, the UK’s most prestigious green business awards, will provide a platform for the country’s most innovative, important, and inspirational organisations to mark the start of this most critical decade by showcasing their era-defining work.
Cambond’s Co-Founder/CEO, Prof. Xiaobin Zhao said ‘We are thrilled at the recognition for our ground breaking technology by being selected as a finalist for Innovation of the Year 2020 for our plant based low carbon resin technology. This continues a great year for us as we have secured government funding (Innovate UK) to develop our Anthropocene mining projects to ‘up-cycle’ consumer and industry plastics and paper wastes and turn them into valuable biocomposite products’.
Cambond has recently set up a development facility in the NIAB Innovation Hub in Soham (Cambridge) to drive commercialisation of its technology and work with a number of industry and academic partners.
