UK biorenewables centre opens

A facility designed to make the UK a world leader in green chemistry has opened at the University of York.

The Biorenewables Development Centre (BDC) aims to bridge the current gap between laboratories and the chemicals industry, say researchers.

The centre, which received £2.5m funding from the government, was opened by Business Secretary Vince Cable.
