    The Biorenewables Development Centre (BDC) is an open-access research, development and demonstration biorefining centre and a subsidiary company of the University of York.

The Communications Manager will also be responsible for leading communications and dissemination on the Horizon Europe-funded Agriloop Project, which has 37 partners.
