ALUSID is a spin-off company from the Silicate Research Unit of University of Central Lancashire (UCLan).

AluSiD was the name given to launch prototype examples of the ‘Eco-material’ David and Dr Alasdair Bremner had been developing as part of the AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) funded research project called ‘The Aesthetic of Waste”. The research project examines mineral waste as a potential alternative to traditional construction materials.

Bamboo is one of the world’s most prolific and fastest-growing plants and is able to reach maturity in about four years, compared to the typical 25 to 70 years for commercial tree species in the U.S. There are over 1000 documented uses of bamboo.  Kitchen Studio Bamboo door2


Bamboo is nature’s most sustainable resource, it is grown without pesticides or chemicals, it is 100% biodegradable, and naturally regenerative. Bamboo is actually a tropical grass, with an extensive root system that sends out an average of four to six new shoots per year, naturally replenishing itself and growing to heights of 60 feet or more. Some bamboo species grow up to 4 feet per day and can be harvested every 3 to 4 years.
