The UKRI/DEFRA are providing £16.5 million more funding for research and development in farming and CCm Technologies is one of the recipients of this funding.
CCm Technologies is an award-winning clean tech company established in 2011 and based in Swindon. CCm’s unique fertilisers are produced by a UK developed process that uses carbon dioxide to stabilise organic waste streams. These nutrient rich materials are then combined to create fertiliser formulations that address specific agronomic and environmental needs through a significantly lower than usual carbon and resource footprints.
They will be receiving £682K to continue work on climate-smart fertilisers with Cranfield University at Luton Hoo. CCm is pleased to see this announcement as it shows UKRI and DEFRA’s faith in its fertiliser project that could halve the nitrogen use in fertiliser while delivering the same yield. This slow release fertiliser could bring huge benefits for fertiliser economics, halving spreading season applications.
