3 Biobased products: Challenges and opportunities Introduction Definitions Market potential Policy issues Challenges Exploring, exploiting and commercialising Summary & conclusions

4 New dawn In few years, sugar will be the new oil. Steen Riisgaard, CEO, Novozymes A transition towards renewable bio-based feedstocks is vital for the production of chemicals, materials, fuels and energy to lessen dependence on fossil energy and achieve climate change goals. For companies like British Sugar these market changes will lead to further opportunities, bringing together scientific skills, process engineering and marketing. Mark Carr, Chief Executive, British Sugar Group

7 Definitions

8 Definition Biorefinery is the co-production of a spectrum of bio-based products (food, feed, materials, chemicals) and energy (fuels, power, heat) from biomass [IEA Bioenergy Task 42].

9 Comparison of the basic principles of a petroleum refinery and biorefinery RefineryBiorefinery Petroleum Fuels Chemicals Biomass Biofuels Biobased products

10 Definitions Biotechnology "The application of scientific and engineering principles to the processing of materials by biological agents". OECD Industrial (white) biotechnology Application of biotechnology for the processing and production of bioenergy and biobased products (chemicals and materials). Red biotechnology is applied to medical processes. Green biotechnology is applied to agriculture. Blue biotechnology is applied to processes in marine and aquatic environments, (such as controlling water-borne diseases).
