2:13pm Friday 29th November 2013

A CLEAN energy company based in Stonehouse has been chosen to take part in a week-long trade mission to the US along with a number of the UK’s other top eco-firms.

Green Fuels, the world’s leading and longest established manufacturer of bio-diesel production equipment, will join a delegation of sixteen British businesses visiting the US state of Colorado in December.

Organised in part by UK Trade and Investment, the ‘clean and cool mission’ will give Green Fuels the opportunity to showcase its technology to American investors and explore business opportunities associated with tackling climate change.

During their visit, Green Fuels representatives will participate in the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) Industry Growth Forum, the premier clean energy investment event in the U.S.

Among the delegation are companies whose innovations address some of the most pressing climate challenges in the country and worldwide.

It is hoped the mission will give them the opportunity to extend their international operations in sectors ranging from solar and wind to smart grids, energy storage and transport.

Simon Carter, deputy director and head of renewable energy at UKTI, said: “We are delighted to sponsor the clean and cool mission to Colorado and support UK innovation internationally.

“Colorado is a fast and reliable gateway to the U.S and to global markets and the mission will allow the firms to learn how to turn their innovations into tangible business opportunities.”
