Trevor, It sounds very well worthwhile to carrying on talking to the Carbon Trust about this or other possibilities. There would be the the obvious benefits of high profile research that could give us some excellent publicity. This could also be an excellent vehicle for establishing stronger working relationships with industrial partners who are carbon tax payers. These could well lead to some significant opprtunities for commercialising research. Another thought that crosses my mind is that the Carbon Trust might be persuaded to put in some capital (maybe as a contribution to ICER?). Graham
