The edie Innovation Zone, supported by the Knowledge Transfer Network, is an exciting new feature at this year’s Sustainability Live which will showcase the newest emerging technologies in the trial stages of development.
The selected technologies – which range from generating energy from ‘rubbish’ plastic bags to mass-market rainwater harvesters – were selected by an independent steering committee and will be presented in a dedicated area of the exhibition.
Amanda Barnes, chief executive at Sustainability Live organiser Faversham House, said: “We are delighted to recognise and showcase some of the truly cutting-edge technologies that are about to enter the sustainability market.
“These pre-commercialised products are the result of countless hours of research and development from teams across the country and we believe this shortlist has true potential to change the industry. The Innovation Zone is just one of a wide range of educational and free-to-attend show features that visitors can access at the event this April.”
