Alternative Raw Materials with Low Impact (ARLI)

Other Business Support

The ARLI project offers funded advice and technical support to eligible SMEs within the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership (GBSLEP) area, on developing innovative low-carbon products and processes.

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, 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
