Genesis BioSciences Selected For United Utilities Innovation Lab

Genesis Biosciences selected for United Utilities Innovation Lab

Cardiff-based Genesis Biosciences has been selected to take part in United Utilities’ Innovation Lab, which provides successful applicants with the opportunity to test their products in a live environment before going to market.

Genesis, which also has a facility in the US, will be trialling its Evogen Biogas Additive; a powdered product that can contribute towards the circular economy of wastewater treatment and disposal.

The Evogen range provides products designed to provide effective and sustainable alternatives to traditional harsh chemicals including those used in wastewater management.

United Utilities manages the water and wastewater services in the North West of England. Its Innovation Lab is focused on providing efficient and sustainable working practices and allows both start-up and established companies a live operational environment to learn and develop potential ideas and solutions.

Finalists will have access to mentorship, data and insights throughout the project as well as gaining access to, and building relationships with, senior United Utilities executives with the potential to lead to longer-term commercial partnerships.

Genesis Biosciences general manager Emma Saunders said: “This is a very exciting project to be involved in. We have worked with United Utilities in the past, but this particular programme will allow us to specifically sample our Evogen Biogas Additive in a live setting and grow our relationship with the organisation at the same time. We look forward to seeing how the trial progresses and reviewing the results.”
