UCLTF invests in Carbon Re, a spinout helping energy-intensive industries reach Net Zero
Carbon Re, a spinout from UCL and Cambridge University, has secured £1m of funding to progress its AI technology which helps energy-intensive industries operate more efficiently, and reach Net Zero targets.

The £1m investment has been secured from the Clean Growth Fund, alongside UCL Technology Fund (managed by Albion VC in collaboration with UCL Business Ltd), the University of Cambridge Enterprise Fund (co-managed by Parkwalk Advisors), and Blue Impact Ventures (founded by Tier CEO, Lawrence Leuschner).

Carbon Re utilises AI technology to assess a customer's manufacturing data, and then help them to become more operationally efficient. As a result, customers can reduce operational costs and carbon emissions to otherwise unachievable levels.

The technology is used within energy-intensive industries, such as cement production, and Carbon Re is currently running pilot projects at cement plants in the EU, Turkey, thailand and Vietnam.
