Nottingham University to move in to China with new sustainable institute

  • Comment
The University of Nottingham has commissioned from within its own staff the design of a new institute of sustainable technology in China.

Professor Saffa Riffat, from the university, has been picked as the principal designer of the new technology facility in Ningbo, in the eastern part of the country, that will mirror a pre-existing centre that has been developed in the UK.

The British government has already thrown its weight behind the £40 million Ningbo campus (pictured) - which will include the new 'sustainable technology institute'.

Professor Riffat, who has worked on the development of sustainable technology with BedZed designer Bill Dunster, hopes to develop low-cost technology in the Far East which can then be marketed in Europe.

The Chinese facility will be used to research the impact and use of fuel cells as well as sources of renewable energy.
