Case Study
  • Innovate UK is the new name for the Technology Strategy Board – the UK’s innovation agency. We offer support and funding to help business develop new products and services – and bring them closer to market. Please note that as UK government agency we can only support businesses and organisations that are based in the UK.

  • Case Study:

    Design and engineering business Lontra has devised a new approach to compression that will save millions of pounds for the water industry and could be used for more efficient processes across wider industry.
    Lontra’s Blade Compressor® was developed with support from Innovate UK. It is a revolutionary new design for an air compressor devised by chief executive Steve Lindsey – hailed as the next Dyson by the Carbon Trust.
    In a trial at Severn Water, the Blade Compressor® led to energy savings of 21.2%. Compressors are used to pump air into sewage. Use of compressors in sewage treatment accounts for 1% of all UK electricity usage. Other advantages of the Lontra compressor are that it is very reliable and oil-free.
    Lontra has signed a multi-million pound licensing deal with Sulzer, a global leader in pumping equipment, to supply into the municipal and regulated wastewater market. It will see its compressor increasingly used in aeration equipment for the treatment of wastewater across the world.
