CHEMUK 2022 saw the introduction of the ‘Bio-Innovation’ Poster Zone
The initiative brought together ‘poster displays’, from across the rapidly evolving ‘biochemical/industrial biotech’ landscape. The zone provided a hugely valuable showcase of some of the most exciting breakthrough innovation in this sector from:
Industrial Enzyme Improvement & Discovery (University of Nottingham)
Introducing our new technology for improvement and discovery of enzymes to enhance performance and robustness, reduce costs, and drive sustainability in industrial chemistry..
Addible is a startup research consultancy built upon years of experience in the field of Green Chemistry. Between us we have published nearly 650 academic papers, attracting in excess of 20,000 citations, as well as being named inventors on 25 patents
Ingenza is a biotechnology company specialising in the design, development and manufacture of diverse, high-value industrial products and therapeutic-proteins. We exploit synergies between synthetic and evolutionary biology, providing next generation microbial and mammalian manufacturing platforms.
Surfachem’s poster promotes our ‘One-Bar’ product concept. This product concept was developed by our laboratory in Huddersfield to promote eco-friendly ingredients within personal care. It is a response to increasing consumer demand for sustainable and natural products. It is an all-in-one wash bar for hair and skin. As a bar it is more concentrated that liquid products, so last longer. It also boasts 98% less packaging.
CHEMUK 2022 Bio-Innovation Posters include:
Bio‑Sep has developed a unique, low energy biorefinery process to convert the by-products of forestry and agriculture into high-value biochemicals.
MORF is a web-based platform that gives researchers access to the insights of ‘Big Data’, through an easy-to-use interface. Built by biologists for biologists, it allows the whole team to access the data securely from their browser, without the need for programming skills..
Green Chemistry/Chemicals (renewable/biological/bio-based)
Green Synthesis / Formulation
Renewable Feedstocks /Biomass
Green consumer and industrial chemical products (sustainable/biodegradable)
Sector/Application specific bio-innovation (e.g. for sustainable textiles, biomaterials)
Waste upcycling/waste valorisation processes
The Bio-Innovation Poster Zone’ forms part of CHEMUK’s event-wide coverage of the Transitioning to Bio-based chemistry & Processes, as well as the wider Chemical Industries ‘Sustainability’, ‘Circular Economy’ and ‘Decarbonisation’ agenda across the show floor and through the 2 day multi-stage free conference.
