University of Birmingham

ARLI - an exciting collaborative research project run by University of Birmingham - offers funded advice and technical support to eligible SMEs within the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership area. We are developing innovative low-carbon products and processes to improve the efficient use of raw or waste materials. The applied research project enables companies to work with us in developing new products and help support the circular economy by reducing or avoiding waste.

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:
• Reducing raw material use
• Material substitution & waste reduction
• Reuse of waste streams
• Geotechnical engineering including buried infrastructure
• Infrastructure monitoring and assessment
• Erosion detection and monitoring
• Design for disassembly
• Sustainability in the supply chain

Resulting in:
• Generation of new materials from waste - spurring growth through the commercialisation of novel products
• Address acute raw material deficiencies which are crippling industrial supply chains
• Aid efficiency and improve environmental impact, with cost-effective solutions realised through reduced carbon emissions
• Better infrastructure asset management
• Preventative maintenance
