Two teams of researchers led by academics at London South Bank University have been awarded funding from the European Union to help develop innovative, environmentally friendly technology which will contribute towards the fight against climate change.
The first project will examine ways to reduce energy use in the cold storage of food, reducing the impact of refrigeration on global warming. The second project will see academic research experts work with industry to encourage wider use of nanotechnology in areas such as solar cell production and new battery technology.
Together, the projects led by LSBU have attracted £1.5 million of EU funding, and will help industries across Europe by developing practical technologies that will both increase their efficiency and reduce environmental...
