About NEBR

NEBR’s vision is that of an international bioresources hub. Having strong positions in all phases of the invention, innovation, development, engineering and operations supply chain through:

• National Centres of Excellence (COEs) located in North East England. Examples include The Centre for Process Innovation (CPI), The National Industrial Biotechnology Facility (NIBF), The Anaerobic Digestion Development Centre (ADDC), The Thermal Technology Centre (TTC), The National Non-Food Crops Centre (NNFCC), National Renewable Energy Centre (NAREC), the Advanced Biologics Manufacturing Centre (ABMC) and the National Formulation Centre.
• Research Institutions and University core specialisms
• Larger companies investing in alternative and novel sustainable feedstocks
• SMEs developing new technology and investing in production plants
• Established process industry businesses continuously improving their operations through resource and energy efficiency mechanisms
• Engineering consulting businesses that design and build plants regionally and globally

These facilities are coupled with an extremely strong and well established skills and training base ensuring that the North East and the Tees Valley in particular are key locations for all aspects of the development of a low carbon economy across the production of renewable fuels, electricity, heat, chemicals and materials. A range of technologies either in current production or in development is further complimented by:

• Industrial Parks with Enterprize Zones
• Two deep sea water ports (Teesport and Port of Tyne)
• Excellent logistics/transport infrastructure for product movement
• Good availability of brownfield sites with planning and permitting regimes in place
• Excellent connectivity to, and availability of, utilities and services
• Underground storage caverns
• Technology deployment

and the North East region is well placed to further develop as a key UK and international centre of biomass processing into renewable fuels, energy, chemicals and materials.
