Scaling up the next generation of bioplastics
Navigating the challenging stages of innovation
UK based SME Biome Technologies works with CPI to progress their technically challenging project along the journey to commercialisation
Biome Bioplastics is one of the UK’s leading developers of intelligent, natural plastics. Its mission is to produce bioplastics that can challenge the dominance of oil-based polymers. With the potential for reduced costs, increased sustainability and biodegradability properties, bioplastics have the potential to create significant environmental and economic impacts. Biome worked closely with CPI’s highly experienced team to develop a roadmap to guide their journey to commercialisation.
An input is a unique capability, service or method of support that was provided, such as equipment or expertise.
- Feasibility study
- Bid writing and consortia building
- Technical knowledge and expertise
An output is the result of the work, such as an experimental finding, an actual product or a pilot demonstrator.
- £5m Investment in 3 CR&D projects
- TRL Progression from 2 to 5
- Collaboration with industry and academia
An outcome arises from implementing the outputs, for example, a profit, an investment, providing jobs or delivering societal benefits. Outcomes continue once an innovation has been implemented and deliver benefit every year.
