Warrington-based Croft Filters are celebrating receiving funding for a ground-breaking study into innovative power generation. This leading UK filter manufacturer was approached by environment-conscious energy producer Titan Electricity to produce a filter with the ultimate goal of creating net-zero power from wasted energy.
The funding that has been secured by Croft Filters in conjunction with Titan Electricity is part of an Innovate UK scheme to develop and demonstrate innovative solutions for clean, affordable and secure energy.
The funding awarded by Innovate UK, the UK’s innovation agency is to cover the cost of the feasibility study. In this project, Croft Filters will ascertain what is needed to achieve the very low micron range to develop a filter which will withstand the extremely hostile conditions the Geo-Engines™ will operate within. Croft Filters has long been an industry-leading company in the filtration sector, boasting an extensive back catalogue of manufacturing techniques. They hope to achieve an improvement in technology readiness level (TRL) for the project to pursue more funding and take the idea to a commercial level.
