The ARLI project will through partnerships to drive collaborative R&D amongst SMEs. This will enable the development of products and processes that provide efficiency gains in the use of raw materials and effective alternatives to their use to:
(1) address acute raw material deficiencies currently crippling industrial supply chains
(2) deliver improved environmental impact with cost effective solutions realised through reduced carbon emissions
(3) spur growth through the commercialisation of novel products and processes
(4) seed collaborative working between HEI’s and Industry
A secondly benefit to this project is the enhancement of skill shortages within the sustainable futures sector.
