EXTEND project

EXTEND project background

The 2045 net zero carbon emission target can only be achieved if industry embraces the transistion from product sales driven business models to ones based on maximising the value of assets. The project’s aim is to build capability, and capacity in Scottish SMEs, extending the lifetime of high value, complex assets including repurposing products no longer fit for their original purpose. Recovering and reusing assets will reintroduce products to market offsetting carbon emissions. The EXTEND project targets three key sectors:

  • Rail
  • Aerospace
  • Renewable energy

The EXTEND project, funded by the ERDF through the Low Carbon Challenge Fund (LCCF) in partnership with East Ayrshire Council, South Ayrshire Council, South Lanarkshire Council, and Smart Sustainable East Kilbride aims to engage SMEs through the events and projects to support the transition to net zero.
