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 future growth in the low carbon market sectors including bioenergy, energy-from-waste, energy systems and bioproducts.

LOW CARBON - Business Opportunities

Help is available now

The Energy & Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University provides practical solutions for businesses to develop sustainable products and services.

Value from waste

The EBRI team are available to give you support and guidance on how to develop new, sustainable, low carbon 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 and 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.
