The Bioeconomy Cluster Builder (BCB) is an ERDF funded collaboration between the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC), Innovate UK KTN and Scottish Enterprise.
- raises awareness of the applications of biotechnology and its ability to support our transition to Net Zero.
- supports the development of new value chains and markets for bio-based products and services.
- encourages the use of bio-based feedstocks including food processing waste, municipal solid waste and agricultural residues.
The bioeconomy offers circular, sustainable alternatives to the linear ‘take-make-dispose’ approach to production. Novel and creative applications of biotechnology enable the creation of value from waste materials – generating significant commercial and environmental benefits along the way.
Using the extensive networks of the three partner organisations we connect the right people and resources to make this happen.
