Nuada is scaling up an award-winning technology which is piloted in cement and waste-to-energy facilities in Italy and England, respectively. The Northern Irish company has already established a global presence and partnered with several global cement majors to deploy its advanced technology as a solution for low-carbon cement production.

The exciting growth phase of the Northern Irish company turns the headlights of the global cleantech sector towards Northern Ireland, in complete alignment with the Department for the Economy’s (DfE) new economic vision as outlined by the Minister earlier this year.

Reflecting on the event, Minister Murphy, explained: “The north is home to a vibrant ecosystem dedicated to building world-leading net zero solutions, and Nuada is a key part of this. Its energy-efficient carbon capture technology is revolutionising how CO2 is captured and significantly advancing decarbonisation efforts, which is a key priority within my Economic Vision. The creation of such innovative technology underscores our role in the global journey towards a sustainable future.

“Nuada’s continuous investment in R&D and passion for innovation are driving its global growth, demonstrated by its recent partnership in Italy. Today marks an important milestone, and I’ve been thoroughly impressed by what Nuada has achieved so far. I look forward to witnessing Nuada’s continued success and contributions to our net zero ambitions."

Nuada’s previous successful raise of £8 million in private investment, £6 million in grant funding and the opening of its purpose-built cutting-edge facilities prime the business for further expansion and creation of highly skilled jobs and career opportunities in a flourishing cleantech sector. In the past year alone, Nuada has doubled its employees and aims to increase its workforce again amidst its effort to meet the global demand for its carbon capture technology.

The co-CEO of Nuada, Dr Conor Hamill, added: “The strategic investment in our premises facilitates Nuada's growth plan to scale up our cutting-edge technology and become a global leader in carbon capture solutions. Starting from Northern Ireland, we are expanding our operations at a global scale to help hard-to-abate sectors decarbonise and reach Net Zero. “

Nuada’s advanced technology features energy-efficient filtration machines designed to capture CO2 from industrial flue gases before they are emitted into the atmosphere from factory chimneys. Unlike current solutions, which are highly energy-intensive and difficult to integrate into industrial processes, Nuada’s approach overcomes these cost, energy, and integration challenges. This innovation enables industrial emitters in sectors such as cement, lime, steel, and waste-to-energy to decarbonise with minimal impact on their bottom line.

Congratulating the company, Susan O’Kane, Invest NI’s Eastern Regional Manager, concluded: “Over the last 12 years, Invest NI has supported Nuada with its research and technical development, as well as to expand its global footprint, and lead the charge towards a sustainable, Net Zero future. We look forward to continuing this partnership as Nuada transforms the carbon capture landscape from its new state-of-the-art facilities in Newtownabbey.”
