Heading up the green revolution
CPI has continued to recruit expert staff for its work in the new energy, new materials and new process sectors - along with encouraging innovation in the process industry by offering help and support to other companies.
Two national centres are now well-established at CPI - the National Industrial Biotechnology Facility and nanotechnology experts NanoCentral.
The centre was also able to announce a world first - the development of a hydrogen-powered fuel cell at South Gare lighthouse at the mouth of the River Tees.
