Life cycle assessment (LCA)

LCA.png

LCA analyses the potential environmental impacts associated with a product’s life cycle, from cradle to grave or parts of it. This can include raw material extraction, processing of raw materials, product manufacturing, distribution, use, maintenance and end of life options.
Nova is able to provide a Life-cycle assessment based on ISO 14040 and 14044 to evaluate the processes and product footsteps. They also are able to provide Life cycle Inventories and Meta-Analysis of already existing LCAs. Based on this and on a Hot Spot Analysis we are able to provide information for environmental process optimization.

Subsidy and grant strategy

Grant.png

If it is clear from the analysis in WP3 that the value chain will need more or different support (e.g. innovation inside the company, other service providers) than can be given in the frame of SUPERBIO, the ‘subsidy writing’ support service can help. This service ensures leverage of the SUPERBIO project on a longer term and even after the project has ended. Patergrus/Biotechsubsidy is specialised in grant management services. They are strong in identifying the right grant schemes for a particular project or for a particular project portfolio. Once an ideal project/grant combination is identified for a particular SME, Biotechsubsidy forms a tight team with the key scientists and business developers of the project to develop the scientific and business strategy. This team adapts the existing projects towards the exact scope of the grant and optimizes the project such that is has optimal chances to be selected for funding. If judged to be relevant, Biotechsubsidy is also willing to perform the administrative project management of the funded project.

This service is offered by BiotechSubsidy.

Market research

Market Research.png

Within the new bio- and CO2-based economy, market conditions change faster than in traditional markets. To achieve the successful commercialisation of your product, you need a good understanding of the environment you are working in and the customer you are seeking to sell your product to. BCNP, NNFCC and the nova Institute can help you answer those strategic questions. We can undertake market landscape reviews determining market size for a given application, its geographical breakdown, product value by application and competing product developers. This data, collected through our large industry network, can be used to identify new potential customers and customer requirements, ultimately strengthening your business case. Stakeholder mapping exercises can be performed to provide insight into key actors with relevant value chains, supply chains or innovation chains, to identify competitors and potential collaborators. We also offer strategic market reviews covering PESTLE considerations, as a basis for assessing likely trends. This can be complemented by a SWOT analysis to provide robust recommendations for future business actions.

Techno-economic evaluation

techno-economic.png

A techno-economic analysis (TEA) enables well-informed decision-making that makes your company fit for the future. Technology and economic appraisals come in the form of technology landscaping exercises. The exercise assesses the ability and potential of a range of available technologies to achieve a desired output, normally with a pro and con analysis to identify the most promising opportunities. Coupling this with an economic appraisal provides you with, not only the right technical choice, but also a suite of options as to how a specific biomass transformation can be carried out in the most cost-effective manner (i.e.  CAPEX and OPEX costs linked to a specific technology, potential revenues streams, the added value of the products in a particular market).
