    We aim to be a zero-waste site however in our recycled water there remains a low-level of methanol. Whilst the methanol level will be low we would like to completely recover this and remove completely.


    Current levels would be low percent (1-2 to 0.1% approx.). We use significant levels of water throughout the process and this can go up to 10-12% recycled water per day. This is part of our biodiesel process.

    We would like to measure the levels of acrolein in one of our unit operations. Levels can vary from low percent to ppm.


    Acrolein is being produced in a glycerol + fatty acid reaction. We would like to have an on-line and ‘bench’ quantification. We would also be interested in its removal from biodiesel using a separation technique. We are also interested in measuring levels of acrolein in water also.

    How can we improve efficiency of our transmission network such that the ever-rising non-commodity costs associated with physical supply can be reduced?


    Even as NBP drops, energy costs are rising for businesses due to increase in govt taxes and transmission charges which ultimately are past to the customer; FiTs, CCL, Triads etc

    What is the expected impact Brexit will have on future power export preference to EU block countries over the UK, particularly where French Nuclear power is concerned, and what are our contingency measures to guarantee supply?


    Winter 16 saw a massive surge in power prices during closure of 7 nuclear power stations in France, meaning supply availability to UK was greatly stretched. How will UK economy compete to prevent disruption to the supply when it is expected that tariffs to buy and sell with the Block will greatly surge?

    Screening technique for wax build up and hydrate detection


    Looking for a fast screening method for ROV deployment that can operate at fast speeds (minimum 500m per hour), that is able to detect and locate hydrates and wax deposits within subsea lines. Main focus is to detect blockages or areas of near blockage
