UCL and Cambridge – Using AI to improve manufacturing

Carbon Re, the first ever spinout to be jointly funded by both University College London and the University of Cambridge, is using Artificial Intelligence to reduce emissions from energy intensive industries such as the manufacture of cement, steel, glass and other materials. These industries are currently responsible for more than 20% of global emissions and are one of the ‘hard to abate’ sectors for which affordable decarbonisation solutions do not currently exist. Carbon Re’s AI technology analyses complex data from the manufacturing process and optimises plant performance to minimise energy consumption while maximising material quality. It is a human in the loop solution that works with plant operators to help them achieve best in class performance and reduce costs and emissions by up to 20%. Carbon Re’s mission is to have gigatons of impact on emissions.
