Electrokinetic secure fund management


Newcastle-based Electrokinetic has secured £210,000 from North East fund management firm NEL to develop commercial products based on its Electrokinetic Geosynthetics technology. Developed at the University of Newcastle, the system uses electrically conductive geosynthetics to dewater slurry by electro-osmosis, compacting and solidifying it and making the resulting material easier to dispose of in landfills (GE October 01). The team, led by chief executive David Huntley, had previously been unable to move forward commercially due to lack of funding. The Electrokinetic team (left to right) of Colin Jones, Stephanie Glendinning, David Huntley and John Lamont-Black is joined by NEL's Duncan Lowery second from right.
