Paul Mines, biome Bioplastics CEO, continues to be appointed to the management board of a government-financed body -disciplinary communities in the industrial biotechnology sector.
The Lignocellulosic Biorefinery Network (LBNet) is an active community of industrial practitioners and leading academics generating economic value through innovative substance, material and fuel procedures that use lignocellulosic biomass instead to petroleum-derived inputs.
With the production of biofuels and bio-based substances raising, lignocellulosic technologies are an essential option for empowering using non-food crops for these processes and developing efficient and sustainable ways of filling material needs and the world’s chemical.
This is great acknowledgement of Biome Bioplastics’ role as a top industry player. Industrial biotechnology is an area filled with promise, but also with actual challenges to reach exploitation at commercial scale. Collaboration of the kind is essential in ensuring that the UK remains a world leader this area – Paul Mines
The LBNet is among 13 collaborative networks put in place by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) to boost interaction between academia and industry, and promote the translation of that research into benefits for the UK.
Biome Bioplastics is invested to industrial biotechnology as a way of developing high performance biomaterials than can compete with, and finally replace, oil-based polymers, and is initiating ground-breaking development and research work in this field.
