Join UoB Business Club to find out more about how investing in sustainability could be a key to future success. Hear from industry experts about how the use and development of low-carbon products and processes could be of a real benefit to your business.
NetZero and sustainability are only going to get more and more important and vital to the every day running of your company with costs increasing and resources running out. The University of Birmingham has an ERDF funded business support programme designed and created to help SMEs meet that challenge.
ARLI brings together a team of experienced academics and engineers to support businesses in developing cost-effective products and processes, which provide energy-efficiency gains in the use of raw and waste materials. The project, delivered through the School of Engineering, aims to identify waste streams, or other materials that could be transformed into higher value goods for construction and other manufacturing industry applications.
The ARLI areas of expertise are:
