n2s Innovation Recognised As ‘Changing the World’
n2s is a technology lifecycle management company that aims to increase the reuse of IT and telecoms devices and components, and recover and reuse all materials at end of life to create an infinite economy for the tech industry. They work with customers such as major banks, telecom companies and the NHS to help meet their sustainability and decarbonisation objectives, net zero targets and overall Environmental Sustainability Goals.
In partnership with Coventry University - n2s - have developed processes to recover metallic elements within old tech or waste that do not include incineration, large quantities of chemicals or acids. Instead they have identified a sustainable solution for the recovery of precious and rare earth metals from printed circuit boards, which has allowed n2s to become one of the first companies in the UK to use these processes.
n2s have also been awarded The Changing The World Award at this year's (2022) prestigious Innovate UK Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) Awards. The Innovate UK KTP awards recognise the people and partnerships behind the UK’s most inspiring and successful KTP projects delivering a societal, social and environmental impact. KTP projects are part funded by Innovate UK- the UK’s Innovation Agency.
