Low carbon business opportunities

During these challenging times, companies are seeking new ways to survive, evolve and expand. Growth opportunities from net zero could be one such good route to explore.

As customer demand for low carbon goods and services is rising, it is becoming increasingly important for suppliers to demonstrate their carbon footprint. More and more businesses are reviewing their supply chain emissions. All of these factors will drive growth in the low carbon market sectors including bioenergy, energy-from-waste, energy systems and bioproducts.

The Energy & Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University provides practical solutions and guidance to help West Midlands businesses on the path to net zero, including:

Buildings & Sites – site survey & consultation

Are you seeking help to maximise the sustainability and energy efficiency of your property and land developments?

Are you interested in:

  • Adding new energy technology to a site?
  • Carbon sequestration offset?
  • Land remediation?
  • Enhancing the visual appearance of buildings and landscapes?
  • Improving energy efficiency?
  • Reducing air pollution?
  • Reusing buildings and industrial sites?
  • Reshaping commercial places?
  • Retrofitting of sites?

If you are looking for guidance in any of these areas, EBRI’s world-leading team of bioenergy, bioproduct and business experts can provide you with a bespoke report following a visit and assessment of your site.

Value from waste

EBRI provides practical support to businesses to develop low carbon, sustainable products and services from a whole range of different waste materials. Redundant material such as food waste, cardboard boxes, plastic waste, sawdust, waste oils, manure, hay straw, sugar beet residue, spent grain waste from breweries are only a few examples of waste that could potentially open up fresh possibilities for your business.

 We can help you:

  • Produce new high value materials from waste which can be commercialised.
  • Create new value-from-waste products by turning them into energy.
  • Generate new value from better management of energy use and generation, using advanced control systems to optimise heating, cooling and electricity.
  • Develop new opportunities in emerging and disruptive marketplaces.
  • Connect to other companies in the energy and bioproducts supply chains.

Case studies

EBRI has helped businesses from a wide range of industry sectors including construction, agricultural, engineering, waste management, financial services, marketing and food manufacturing.
