The Core of the Bioeconomy: New Developments in Bio-based Building Blocks and Platform Chemicals

31 January 2017

For its 10th anniversary, the International Conference on Bio-based Materials, 10-11 May, Cologne, Germany, has a special focus: Bio-based building blocks and platform chemicals

According to the organisers, nova-Institute, the bioeconomy is developing well. It says that most investment is going to the core of the bioeconomy: bio-based building blocks and platform chemicals. The capacities show a two-digit yearly growth. Based on this, new building blocks, new bio-based polymers, coatings, surfactants and others will follow. “For the conference, we were able to get the ten leading companies worldwide to Cologne –  a unique opportunity to meet the pioneers in the field at one place,” says Michael Carus, Managing Director at nova-Institute. In addition the latest market data and policy trends will be presented at the conference by international experts.

In the tradition of supporting promising technologies and innovative ideas, the Bio-based Materials Conference will again feature two items on its agenda dedicated to this cause:

The start-up session supports young companies with networking and cooperation opportunities and connects them to potential partners from industry and finance. Several start-ups will show their latest development and are looking for industrial partners. Start-ups wishing to participate can still send a document presenting their product, process, used feedstock and target markets to achim.raschka@nova-institut.de and also highlight the real innovation and the benefits of the product/technology.

The prestigious innovation award ‘Bio-based Material of the Year 2017’ will be awarded for the tenth time. The advisory board will make a preselection of all applications and narrow the field down to a ‘Top 6’ new materials and products. The final decision will be made by the conference participants after the nominees presented their innovations. Applications are still open until end of February.
