LOW CARBON opportunities for your business

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.


Help is available now
The Energy & Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University provides practical solutions for businesses to explore these increasingly important, vibrant markets.

Contact us for a virtual consultation.

How you can benefit from our support:

          • 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

EBRI can provide you with the following:
