Singapore’s newest Create research centre will study ways to slash the carbon footprint left by companies refining petroleum and making petroleum-based chemicals.

It hopes that these solutions will be taken up by energy and chemical firms based here.

The Cambridge Centre for Carbon Reduction in Chemical Technology has received approval and funding from the National Research Foundation, the foundation said in a release yesterday.

The centre is a collaboration between the University of Cambridge, Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and the National University of Singapore (NUS). It is part of the Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (Create) programme, which invites top international research universities to set up research centres here in collaboration with Singapore universities.
