What is the “Bioeconomy”? Bioeconomy is defined as the knowledge-based production and utilization of biological resources, biological processes and principles to sustainably provide goods and services across all economic sectors. It involves using renewable biological resources sustainably to produce food, energy and industrial goods, and exploits the untapped potential stored within millions of tons of biological waste and residual materials. It includes such things as biofuels, biochemicals, biomaterials, biomass, biotechnologies, feedstocks, renewable diesel, waste and water treatment, synthetic biology, hemp and cannabis, biochar, and waste management, just to name a few. Experts within the bioeconomy can assist clients in many ways from techno economic analyses of projects, biotechnology selection or vetting, grants & funding options and preparation, project oversight, expert witness testimony in litigation, and much more.
Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms should have experts in a wide variety of biofuels and renewable fuels, and the more common areas like biomaterials, biomass and biomass power, feedstocks, and biotechnologies. In these larger consulting groups, one may also find very specialized expertise like catalytic valorization, carbon intensity, polymer recycling, FSMA compliance, cogeneration, combined heat & power, formulation chemistry, cannabinoids, solvents, sludge, solid state fermentation, soil amendment, solid recovered fuels, RFS2, carbon fiber, GMPE, Polymer Pyrolysis, Polypropylene, fuel additives, biopharmaceuticals, renewable technology, oilseed processing or water treatment.
