Businesses from the Marches are being offered the chance of a free consultation to help them make the most of the nation’s low carbon challenge.
The Energy and Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) is offering the one-to-one consultations as part of its commitment to helping local businesses explore Green products and innovations.
EBRI – which is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and based at Aston University in Birmingham – says free 30-minute sessions are available to any SME based in Herefordshire, Shropshire or Telford & Wrekin.
Manufacturing, engineering, waste management, construction, financial services, agricultural, packaging, as well as food and drinks industries amongst others, can all benefit from an exclusive low carbon challenge consultation with EBRI.
"There are all sorts of options," says Tim Miller, EBRI’s director of engagement. "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.
"Not only can we support entrepreneurs looking to either develop new low carbon products and services or turn waste material into energy, we can also help business owners looking to maximise the sustainability and energy efficiency of their property and land developments."
During a 30 minute-consultation session, EBRI will discuss the particular low carbon challenge that the company is facing so that its team of experts can then devise a bespoke summary of their recommendations, research findings and other useful information to help the business.
EBRI will be holding low carbon challenge consultation sessions on the following:
• Agricultural Waste
• Brewers, Vineries, Cider Makers & Distillers
• Buildings & Sites
• Food & Drink
• Wood & Cardboard
