The Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory (LCEI), the low carbon business support programme, scooped the Environmental Impact Award at the 2020 Mersey Maritime Industry Awards.
The award was in recognition of the contribution LCEI research collaborations have made to driving forward the region’s maritime economy. A previous LCEI PhD researcher, Cair Bird, also won an award taking home the Rising Star Award for his work with Marlan Maritime. The company has previously won awards for its work with LCEI and its previous incarnation as the Centre for Global Eco-Innovation.
LCEI is a £12m partnership between the University of Liverpool, Liverpool John Moores University and Lancaster University to assist local SMEs to develop new and improved low carbon products and processes.
Now in its sixth year, the Mersey Maritime Industry Awards celebrates the achievements of Liverpool City Region’s booming £4bn maritime sector.
The glittering awards ceremony, hosted by BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin, attracted more than 500 guests into the St George’s Hall into hear inspiring speeches and see awards given out to 13 businesses and individuals from across the diverse maritime industry.
The LCEI has funded 45 low carbon PhD projects across a number of Schools at the University, while reducing carbon emissions by over 40,000 tonnes, increasing employment by over 300, helping to create over 150 new products and services and attracting over £4M of additional inward investment.
