Viridian will be evaluating an innovative approach to significantly reduce the hazards associated with characterising asbestos contaminated materials (ACMs)
Innovate UK is funding single and collaborative research and development projects as part of the Sustainable Innovation Fund over the next two years, totalling over £130 million in support across the UK. The aim of these competitions is to help all sectors of the UK rebuild after the effects of COVID-19.
Innovate UK Executive Chair Dr Ian Campbell said: “In these difficult times we have seen the best of British business innovation. The pandemic is not just a health emergency but one that impacts society and the economy. Viridian Consultants, along with every initiative Innovate UK has supported through this fund, is an important step forward in driving sustainable economic development. Each one is also helping to realise the ambitions of hard-working people.”
