As a postgraduate student, Dr Miloud Ouadi investigated the production of new biofuels from paper industry waste. His ultimate goal was to turn his research into commercial success. Just five years later, and thanks to TEP, that is what he’s done.
Tyseley Energy Park has a rich industrial history and Webster & Horsfall have been a part of that history for hundreds of years. The development of TEP will sustain that history with traditional manufacturing and innovative technologies, bringing jobs to the area and helping to enhance the skills of local residents.
Each year in the West Midlands, we spend £6.7 billion on electricity, gas and fuel for vehicles – but because we no longer have working coal mines and power stations, all that money flows out of the region. So we need innovative, more localised energy solutions, and TEP will be the showcase for the latest low-carbon technologies to develop the business models and infrastructure.
