Vert Rotors receives £60,000 award from Innovate UK

Equity Gap portfolio company Vert Rotors has been awarded £60,000 from Innovate UK to fund opportunities in energy harvesting initially from the UK’s natural gas distribution network, in partnership with G-Plus Technology.

Vert’s chief executive Philip Harris said that the funding would enable his team to study the unique pressure and flow capabilities of their patented Conical Rotary Compressor (CRC) technology in energy harvesting primarily from natural gas distribution but also across a range of other applications in new and growing markets.
