Who are we?

BEACON is led by Aberystwyth University in collaboration with partners at Bangor and Swansea Universities. BEACON has been part funded by the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government.

What do we bring to BioPilotsUK?

BEACON aims to contribute to developing renewable energy and assist in the transition to a low carbon economy with an overall objective of mitigating the impact of climate change, and focuses on the development of a viable Welsh bio-economy through the expansion of green supply chains.

“BEACON is an invaluable resource to our company. At Clifford Jones Timber we always try to be imaginative whilst adding value to our processes. Without BEACON’s scientific knowledge and research facilities we would not have been able to explore such wide-ranging and innovative concepts.”
