SuperBIO Workshop: Biopolymers and biomaterials for packaging and goods

Biopolymers and biomaterials are becoming increasingly popular in many industries. They are environmentally friendly, non-toxic and recyclable materials for production of various goods. It is not surprising that the packaging industry is the dominant sector of their applications. Based on a report published by Global Market Insights, Inc., a biopolymer coatings market size, in 2015, was worth more than USD 750 million. It is estimated to surpass USD 1.3 billion by 2024, with a CAGR of more than 6% over 2016-2024.

This workshop is oriented towards companies active in the production of biopolymers and biomaterials and their processing into consumer goods, primarily packaging.

Detailed information about the venue and the workshop program will be provided soon.

Innovation capture and patent filing

IP.png

Today, more than ever, innovation is at the heart of a business’ future.  Intellectual property rights (IPRs) are fundamental to securing that future, and your market share.  GJE’s Innovation Capture Session (ICS) provides a strategy and practical guidance designed to protect and leverage your ideas in line with your business plan.  In discussion with you, the ICS will uncover new innovations within your company and establish their importance in the context of your commercial objectives.  Potentially patentable innovation can then be protected with a patent application, which GJE will draft and file for you.  If you have existing IPRs then GJE’s IP Audit will map them to your products and services, identifying any gaps or redundant IPRs, allowing the development of a more practical, relevant and cost-effective IP strategy.  These are just some of the IP services that GJE offer.  So if you would like to discuss how IPRs can be used to secure the future of your business get in touch with GJE.

Proof-of-concept and scale up

Scale up.png

BBEPP is a flexible and diversified pilot plant for the development and up-scaling of new, bio-based processes.  It is capable of scaling up and optimizing a broad variety of bio-based processes up to an industrial level. Companies we worked with testify that they were about 1 to 2 years faster to the market, at a substantially reduced cost, and with an improved process compared to scaling-up on their own. The scale-up results enabled the companies to convince new customers and investors.

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).

Life cycle assessment (LCA)

LCA.png

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is the most reliable method to identify environmental issues within a process and verify claims of sustainability advantages. It identifies hot spots in processes, materials and products, providing a benchmark against which improvements can be measured. It provides transparent and reliable data in comparison to other products, enabling producers, providers and customers, to make well informed decisions.

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.

How SuperBIO can strengthen your BBI proposal

BBI proposals should address issues such as LCA, sustainability, regulatory barriers, business planning, techno-economic, feedstock and market information, IP position, technology beyond lab scale (TRL 4) already from the proposal stage. Addressing these issues in a professional way gives you a clear advantage to winning the bet.

SuperBIO gives SMEs access to these services through six service providers at a 75% funding rate. SMEs or consortia that are preparing a BBI submission can submit an application to the SuperBIO project.
