Organization profile

Organisation profile

The Energy and Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University conducts world-class research into all aspects of bioenergy including energy-from-waste and the development of new bioproducts and services, all of which contribute to improving the UK's carbon footprint and improving security of energy supplies.

Innovative research and development of bioenergy technologies has taken place at Aston University for over 40 years. EBRI acts as a focus for international activities on scientific and technological aspects of biomass conversion and utilisation of products for renewable power, heat, transport fuels, hydrogen and chemicals. The institute works to extract the maximum value from all types of biomass, including waste resources.

As Europe strives to meet significant carbon reduction targets, EBRI’s work in developing the role and business case for bioenergy, has never been more important. We are committed to understanding, creating and conducting world-class bioenergy research and technology development and to communicate its importance and role for society. Our work demonstrates that there is a viable, sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.

EBRI is led by Professor Patricia Thornley, who also leads the UK-wide Supergen Bioenergy Hub project.
