Where industry gather to improve the quality of Bio-based products and processes and grow the Bio-based technology market

Turn crops, paper pulp, sewage, food waste, wood, manures & slurries and algae into top quality fossil-fuel free products

1,200+ attendees from across industry and throughout the entire value chain of Bio-based industries

A chance for industrial manufacturers, procurement professionals and supply chain experts to discover the latest green innovations

Building a stronger market for Bio-based products

Bio-based resources have a huge variety of properties, making them not only the most exciting materials for manufacturing, but more importantly the best quality solutions that are fit for purpose. With the plethora of feedstocks, oil & starch based crops, wood, algae, sewage and paper pulp available in our ecosystem (much going to waste) the business and sustainability benefits of re-thinking which raw materials go into your products, packaging and processes are clear. The Bio Based Innovations Expo 2017 showcases the most progressive technologies, bio-based materials & biodegradable products, provides a learning platform for new innovations and connects over 1,200 Investors, innovators & purchasers to help scale the bio-economy and reach it’s true potential.

What you will discover:

  • How to stimulate expansion and market generation for your products
  • Ways to enhance the quality and competitiveness of bio based innovations
  • Cutting edge technologies that add value to your products
  • Effective ways to work with governments and influence positive regulatory reform

The potential for bio-based solutions to contribute to the UK economy is skyrocketing.

BBIA’s mission is to unite those working in the biodegradable and bio-based industries and to develop partnerships with those who share our vision: to put the bioeconomy agenda at the centre of the political debate on sustainability and economic growth in the UK.

To open up opportunities and standards in the emerging green economy market, BBIA will work with companies and organisations involved in the production of bio-based and biodegradable chemicals and polymers for the benefit of the environment.

Launched in 2014 The Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC) was set up to bridge the gap between education and industry.

We are specialists in the industrial biotechnology (IB) sector, with a deep embedded knowledge and the technical expertise to help stimulate the growth and success of the IB industry in Scotland by connecting the dots between industry, academia and government. We represent all four colours of IB, facilitating collaborations and guiding organisations from a concept or idea, through to industry adoption.

Our vision is to create a truly distinctive, world-leading innovation centre for industrial biotechnology. We will accelerate and de-risk the development of commercially viable, sustainable solutions for high-value manufacturing in chemistry-using and life science sectors. By 2030 our target is to generate £1 to £1.5bn of Gross Value Added contribution annually to the Scottish economy, this represents a growth of revenue from today’s estimated value of £190M, to between £2 and £3bn.
