CSEF is funded by the Research Councils UK and has been established to contribute to the national effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80% compared to 1990 levels by 2050. CSEF, which is led by Brunel University London in partnership with the Universities of Manchester and Birmingham, investigates and develops innovative approaches and technologies to effect substantial energy demand reductions in food chains.
