Last week academics and industry leaders convened in the historic town of LLandrindod Wells to discuss how the Circular Revolution can help businesses in Mid Wales and the Valleys. Experts from hydrogen car manufacturer Riversimple, Swansea University and the University of Exeter came together to layout their plans for enabling businesses to become more circular.
Llandrindod Wells is home to Riversimple, one of our collaborators, who hosted the event at the historic Rock Park. The 2 day workshop consisted of a number of presentations and workshops delivered on specific areas Circular Revolution intends to assist businesses with such as: engagement, blockchain, supply chain and legal guidance to name but a few. The first day concluded with a team BBQ and a visit of Riversimple’s latest hydrogen vehicle.
The overall takeaway from the workshop was one of unity and interoperability. Many of the attendees remarked how helpful it was to meet in person to gain an in depth understanding of how each aspect of the project intertwines to enable businesses in Mid Wales and the Valleys to become more sustainable.
The next event is set to be the 2022 Circular Revolution conference which aims to build off the back of the success of the 2021 conference. The exact date and location are expected to be announced soon.
