Godrej & Boyce partners with Digital Catapult to develop net-zero industrial solutions

Godrej Aerospace has collaborated with Digital Catapult and Intellegens to transform the future of net-zero manufacturing and supply chains by helping reduce waste, emissions and thereby minimising environmental impact


Godrej & Boyce, the flagship company of the Godrej Group, has announced that its business, Godrej Aerospace, has partnered with Digital Catapult, the UK authority on advanced digital technology, to innovate methods and processes for industrial net zero initiatives. 

As a part of the ‘FutureScope Build UK-India’ programme, the focus is to foster collaboration between UK’s tech start-ups developing net-zero solutions for the industry with leading Indian corporations to transform the future of net-zero manufacturing and supply chains. On account of the ‘Net Zero Strategy’ by the UK government, which focuses on clean energy for a sustainable future and India’s renewed commitment to meet global net-zero targets, this international partnership is expected to reshape the future of the industry by helping large companies reduce waste, emissions and minimise environmental impact.

The Digital Catapult FutureScope Build UK-India programme revolves around two significant industrial net-zero challenges of ‘material resource optimisation’ and ‘zero waste manufacturing’. Godrej Aerospace will offer industrial insights and domain expertise to these focus areas, working closely with another UK tech start-up, Intellegens, to co-create a series of demonstrators to be showcased in March 2022. 

Commenting on the collaboration, SM Vaidya, Executive Vice President & Business Head, Godrej Aerospace, said, “Godrej & Boyce has always encouraged the collaboration with SMEs to nurture the manufacturing ecosystem and assist start-ups in their growth and development. We are grateful to Digital Catapult and the UK government for fostering a fruitful partnership between the two countries that will not only address the industrial net-zero challenges but also encourage innovation and development in the manufacturing and technology industries.”

Intellegens’ CEO, Ben Pellegrini, commented, “Our Alchemite™ machine learning software has demonstrated value in optimising product and process properties and saving experimental time and cost. We're very pleased to be working with Godrej Aerospace to focus not only on these aspects but also on minimising environmental impacts to meet critical industrial net-zero challenges." 

With case study projects from organisations including NASA, GKN Aerospace and Rolls-Royce, Intellegens’ artificial Intelligence toolset, Alchemite™, helps scientists and engineers to optimise products and processes while reducing the amount of experimentation time by up to 90%, getting products to market faster and at a lower cost. By designing a novel alloy for aero engines, Intellegens have gone onto drug discovery, batteries, chemicals, formulated products, and optimising manufacturing processes.
