Free online guide to Opportunities in Resource Management Industries in Tees Valley now available...
Tees Valley Unlimited is working to attract jobs and investment to our area. To this end, we\'ve created a free, online guide for companies around the UK, to showcase our offer and capabilities in resource management industries.

Government\'s Review of Waste Strategy published in June 2011 restated Government\'s commitment to move towards a "zero waste" economy, recognising waste as a source of renewable energy and gave commitments to encourage and support both energy from waste and anaerobic digestion projects.

Tees Valley has expertise and potential across all elements of the emerging low carbon economy from anaerobic digestion (AD), heat waste and gasification to bioethanol, WEEE and the decommissioning of large structures.

Global energy players like Air Products, SITA and Sembcorp have all recently announced major investments in Tees Valley which, combined with the area\'s proven research capability in anaerobic digestion, biotechnology and bioremediation, reinforces the Tees Valley credentials as a leading low and zero waste hotspot.

To find out how Tees Valley can help position your company at the front of a growing UK industry, read on.
