Industrial biotech is taking the UK towards net-zero carbon

UK industry is directly responsible for a quarter of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions. Industry uses fossil resources such as oil, coal and gas as the raw material to create a range of products, including plastics, bulk chemicals and fertilisers, as well as to provide heat and power for industrial processes such as steelmaking. A by-product of both production and combustion is carbon dioxide (CO2). This gas is almost entirely released to the atmosphere and is thereby a major UK contributor to climate change.

There are many examples of industrial biotechnology in action. Biodegradable plastics are being made from biomass by companies like Biome Bioplastics, in collaboration with several UK universities, without the need for fossil resources.

Biome Technologies plc is a growth oriented, commercially driven technology group. The Group’s primary activity is the development of its fast growing business in bioplastics. The Group comprises two divisions: Biome Bioplastics and Stanelco RF Technologies.
