Innovate Recycle Ltd will establish the UK’s first carpet recycling facility at the Chelveston Energy Park in Northamptonshire.
The UK government’s Getting Building Fund will provide £2.35m towards an overall project cost of £5.0m. They will utilise proven technology from the US, but benefit from IP exclusivity in the UK, and by the end of our year 5 will have established a highly profitable business with an expected net profit margin of 57%.
What do they do? They will transform the way that the UK utilises post-consumer and industrial carpet waste, working closely with the carpet industry to increase the environmental performance and build a circular economy in carpet manufacturing; and they will be at the forefront of technology and processes that enable deconstruction and resource recapture from end of life carpets and the reuse of those resources, in particular polypropylene, across a wide range of industries and applications.
How do they do it? They gather end of life carpet from a range of sources, including manufacturers, waste transfer stations and waste handling companies – charge a gate fee per tonne (indicatively £85) for all processed feedstock. They then process and deconstruct carpet waste using technology developed in the United States to produce the primary product of reusable polypropylene (PP); sale to a wide range of plastics manufacturing and applications (indicatively £650 per tonne). By the end of their third year, they will process 20,000 tonnes of carpet waste pa; and produce a minimum 12,500 of reusable PP pa.Continue reading
Co-Space fuses high end design with environmental conservation to deliver flexible office space to the regions outside of Central London. With a mission to deliver working environments focused on the well-being of occupants, Co-Space sources recycled products, furniture and materials from community groups and companies set-up to support vulnerable groups from society.
Using Biophilia (that’s special plants to the rest of us) to create fresh, natural atmospheres they have created plastic free spaces that make it easy for people to work in and deliver a circular economy – all outside of Central London.
Co-Space founders Alistair Thomas and William Stokes said “We saw the explosion of flexible office space in Central London and how other towns and cities were being left behind. Start-ups, SMEs and even more established businesses are left with the choice of old tired spaces, providers like Regus or business centres with no flexibility or consideration for the changing needs of the workforce. We needed to address this’Continue reading
An ambitious and profitable social business, delivering an effective solution to the chronic problem of poor housing stock and increasing numbers needing housing. Having doubled its assets in the last financial year and currently housing 75 vulnerable tenants, Bighous is looking for equity growth capital to expand its impact geographically. The investment looks for a total ROI in the region of 10% pa, comprising capital growth and a compulsory and cumulative 5% annual dividend.
Uniquely we work with charity partners from the start to identify suitable distressed housing stock that could fulfill their needs. Once identified, we purchase and renovate it to the charity’s requirements, before leasing to them, enabling them to house the most vulnerable members of society (incl. homeless, substance abusers, ex-offenders, physically or mentally challenged, asylum seekers, orphans, victims of family abuse).
All of those we help house are in crucial need of care and support, facing significant life challenges. By working with charitable partners, we help ensure our housing provides a reliable and tailored place to stay for the tenants; a crucial step in their rehabilitation. This positive change would not be possible without a place to stay.
The unique Bighous model recycles and reinvests capital after each completed project, allowing us to grow in scale. We extract the rising value in redeveloped assets to redeploy to new projects increasing our impact on those most in need. At the same time rental agreements signed with our charity partners and backed by Government revenue, provide an ongoing profit stream to satisfy investor requirements.Continue reading

Our aim is to revolutionise recycling. Our vision is a web of industries where one stream’s waste is another stream’s in-feed: bridging linear and wasteful processes to create a circular, pollution-free, zero-waste future. Our projects include the recycling of lead-acid, lithium-ion and alkaline batteries; end-of-life tyres and plastic; municipal waste; and more.
Our flagship technology is a green process for the recycling of lead battery paste. We reduce the carbon footprint by 85%; eliminate noxious gases (including sulphur dioxide) at no added cost; slash energy use by at least 4,000 MWh per 10,000 tonnes of spent batteries processed; and reduce waste by at least 90%. Our technology saves money and improves the energy and power densities, cycling and charge acceptance of lead batteries (due to the nanostructured nature of our leady oxides).

We see a scary paradox between the exceptional durability of plastic as a material and the way it is used in disposable, single use packaging.
In the UK, over 300 million plastic miniature toiletries are purchased and used every year, most of them thrown away after just one use.
Mini’s are a real nuisance to recycle because most recycling centres typically have equipment that removes small items. Non-recycled items normally end up in landfill, our beautiful ocean or burnt to create toxic flames.
We think that is a little crazy, so we created a better way. The Circla Way.
Our mission is to help you remove unnecessary single-use plastic waste by enabling you to reuse in the easiest, most convenient way possible without having to compromise on quality or cost.

The idea for iSmart was fueled by one of our colleagues at the time, and her passion and dedication as a mother of a dyslexic child. Her frustration towards the lack of support within the schooling system for children with learning difficulties, ignited the initial concept. She dreamt of an application that could help dyslexic students collect information – read, write, comprehend, and focus.
The dream became a reality when our company, together with other partners managed to win a fierce competition for European Union funds (Lifelong Learning Programme). As a result, Project iSmart was awarded. Following an exciting 3 years which included its fair share of challenges, piloting periods in 3 countries, beta versions and a ton of paperwork, we decided to invest even further.
Backed up enthusiastically by educational experts, programmers, designers and the dyslexia community itself, we believe that our apps will revolutionise the way students learn, study and grow to reach their full potential sooner than ever. Learn more about our team here.
