Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park welcomes latest new occupier

Gloucestershire Science and Technology Park (GSTP) have welcomed its latest occupier to the Berkeley Green site. Green Fuels Research have taken on an area of laboratory space within one of the buildings on site.

Green Fuels Research (GFR) is a research company in renewable fuels and bioenergy. GFR, moving to Berkeley from Staverton, Cheltenham, was founded in 2013 to focus on research and development alongside its sister company, Green Fuels Ltd, which has been supplying equipment to the biofuels industry for the last 13 years, with customers in more than 50 countries. In the UK, Green Fuels Ltd has a Royal Warrant for supply of renewable fuels to HRH the Prince of Wales, and has won numerous industry awards. 

Pete Barrett, Property Manager at SGS comments: "We are delighted to be working with GFR on this project. Some of the laboratory space has been unused for a number of years and it is great to be working with occupiers to bring them back to life."

Andy Slaney, Chief Operating Officer at SGS added: "GFR are a perfect fit for GSTP where we are keen to explore low carbon and renewable technologies. We have solar PV's planned for our new GREEN Skills Centre and are keen to explore the potential offered by the adjacent River Severn.”

Chief Operating Officer at GFR, Paul Hilditch commented: "We’re excited to be part of the development of GSTP, which will be a great space for the next stage of our projects in renewable aviation fuel and waste-derived biofuels. There is ample scope here for growth and expansion of our workforce, and as a cleantech company we’re delighted to see the investment in green skills development by SGS.”
