Bio-based chemicals, polymers and biofuels are a good way to reduce your carbon footprint. Drivers for bio-based materials include investment funds seeking low carbon projects, big brands substituting bio-based products, and governments stimulating the bio-economy. A wide range of companies is now working to add bio-based options to their product range.

With our experience in the chemicals, biofuels, biomaterials and fossil fuel industries we can help customers develop ideas and strategies for new bio-based routes to drop-in or novel products. We can also help with biofuel regulatory compliance. We have an extensive knowledge of the latest industrial and policy developments worldwide.

But some bio-based feedstocks have attracted criticism. By ensuring that risks are mitigated from the start, sustainable bio-based chemicals and biomaterials can be produced which offer substantial benefits without adverse impacts.

We offer technical and policy advice on:

  • Market developments and drivers;
  • Sustainable sourcing;
  • Co-processing with fossil feedstock;
  • Measurement of bio-based content;
  • Environmental and social sustainability;
  • LCA and greenhouse gas savings;
  • Compliance with EU Directives;
  • EU and US policy and incentives.
