The winners of the innovation award “Best CO2 Utilisation 2020”


At nova-Institute’s first online conferences on PtX and Carbon Capture and Utilization (CCU), 50 speakers presented and discussed the future of aviation fuels and carbon dioxide as feedstock! In the face of the current crisis, nova-Institute decided to defy the circumstances and found a new ...


Map of 224 European biorefineries published

BIC and nova-Institute showing european bio-production landscape


Biorefineries are the heart of the bioeconomy. Here, different types of biomass are fully utilised and transformed into a large variety of chemicals and materials.The map distinguishes between “Sugar-/starch based biorefineries”, producing bioethanol and other chemicals (63), “Oil-/fat-based ...


Microplastics in the Environment: Which Sources Are Relevant?


Scientific studies have shown that the litter found in oceans and inland waters is dominated by plastics. Besides large items such as plastic bottles and bags, the occurrence of microplastics has also been verified in water bodies, sediments and on the beaches of the world's oceans. These ...


Production capacities for bio-based polymers in Europe

Status quo and trends towards 2020


Europe's current position in producing bio-based polymers is limited to a few polymers. However, new developments and investments are foreseen: the first European industrial-scale PLA plant by 2014, the introduction of future PET production facilities by 2015, recent developments in the ...


Carbon Dioxide as Feedstock for Polymers and Fuels – a challenge for sustainable chemistry


Carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, the end product of burning fossil fuels or biomass, are largely responsible for the greenhouse effect and thus for climate change. A reduction in CO2 emissions is therefore at the very top of the international political agenda. Trials are running in parallel to ...


The first comprehensive multi-stakeholder market study on "Bio-based Plastics in the World - Capacities, Production and Applications: Status Quo and Trends Towards 2020”


There is general agreement that we lack a consolidated international market study on the fast-growing bio-based plastics sector. To date there has been no coherent and fundamental survey of the worldwide bio-based plastics market. Data is particularly limited for the emerging Asian markets. As ...


iBIB2011 - International Business Directory of Major Suppliers of Bio-based Plastics and Composites Worldwide


The market for bio-based plastics and composites continues to grow at double-figure rates and has now gained true international status. However, thenew market functions mainly based on 'insider-knowledge' and therefore lacks transparency. The international business directory iBIB2011 comprises ...
