Biobased Processes and Implementation

Maria Barbosa, Harry Bitter, Emiel Wubben, Jacqueline Bloemhof, Justus Wesseler, Argyris Kanellopoulos, Dmytro Krushynskyi, WageningenX

Discover how to use microorganisms and catalysts to create biobased products, and how to market and sell those products in a profitable business model.

What does it take to create and implement a biobased product? What does it take to create and implement a biobased product? Lots of disciplines are involved in the transition from fossil to biobased. In this course you will gain insights into what the transition takes from 5 perspectives, ranging from chemistry to economy. This multi-disciplinary approach allows you to work on improving resource efficiency and the use of land in order to meet the needs of stakeholders, while not forgetting climate, biodiversity, multiple land use, recreation and societal issues. This course offers you a unique and challenging learning opportunity to combine insights from multiple scientific disciplines. That way you can help your company to make the right decisions with respect to a transition to the use of renewable, biobased resources.

This course may advance your career because it offer you insights into biobased business investment climate, regulations in the biobased economy, bioreactors and conversion paths and strategic niche management principles. These topics are essential to anyone working in the biobased industry. Therefore, you’ll explore 5 major issues:

1. Bioconversion
Learn how to convert molecules through microbial processes. Find out how to choose the right host organism and how choices in process design influence cell growth, substrate conversion and product formation.

2. (Bio)Chemical conversion
Explore catalytic conversion of biomass by discussing types of catalysts, special challenges for catalysis when converting biomass and the interplay of catalysis and up/down stream processes.

3. Business
Learn the steps to transform a biobased product to a winning business case. We’ll discuss commercial, financial and organizational aspects and stakeholder management to realize biobased ambitions. You’ll also learn about the required dynamics in and timing of (innovation) activities for a sector transformation to a biobased economy.

4. Logistics and Supply Chains
Understand the biobased supply chain including network design and geographical allocation of processing steps answering the key questions where to produce, how to transport and where to process biobased products.

5. Economy and Regulations
Learn the economic basis for government regulations and implications for the biobased economy and in particular the responses by the private sector. This includes the economic foundations for government regulations from different perspectives, the implications for an economic assessment of regulatory policies and a look at the regulatory policies in the United States and the European Union.

Have a look at BB01x if you want to learn more about other disciplines that are necessary for the transition from fossil resources to resources based on biomass, including refinery, consumer behavior, biomass, and sustainability. If you join both courses, you will find that together they will provide a 360° view of the biobased economy and current challenges.
