Technologies & Markets for Biochemicals and Bioproducts

A comprehensive guide to the feedstocks, conversion technologies and market opportunities for creating chemicals and other products from biomass sources.

The global interest in bio-based chemicals and products is developing at pace. Current research indicates that the green chemical industry market will reach $98.5 billion by 2020 (Pike research). This course provides an insight into the range of feedstocks currently used, the maze of conversion pathways available and then goes on to discuss the economics and market potential of the industry as well as the issues and debates revolving around sustainability, land use and GHG emissions.

Key learning objectives

  • Review the sources and limitations of feedstock availability for creating bio-based chemicals and products
  • Compare bio-chemical processes with those used in biofuels and other bioenergy pathways
  • Understand the many terminologies and technologies used to describe the complex map of conversion pathways
  • Discuss the market opportunities and challenges and risks in meeting them
  • Evaluate the current market for bio-based products and the emerging issues, both technological and economic, which are driving future progress
