Highlights from the “UK Top Bio-based Chemicals Opportunities” report
The UK government should focus on 10 specific bio-based chemicals, in order to boost industrial growth, jobs, trade and investment in the UK, says a new report.
Bio-based chemicals represent a dynamic area of innovation in the UK, which could become a world leader in this emerging industry. The UK has an important research lead in these 10 chemicals, and the infrastructure and global supply chains to exploit them.
The report was developed by LBNet, sponsored by the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), in consultation with leading biotechnology and chemistry experts from business, academia and the public sector. It includes recommendations to government to ensure the industry delivers its potential.
