Bio-Based World Quarterly #10“Quite simply, it’s an obvious opportunity for Ireland to take. With our strong tradition of forestry, marine and in particular agri-food - which employs around 170,000 people in a sector worth €26 billion - we are perfectly placed to become a global leader.”

Welcome to the tenth issue of the Bio-Based World Quarterly, your dedicated guide to the latest news and essential business developments for bio-based chemicals, products and fuels and the brands that purchase, use and sell them.

The above quote is from Professor Orla Feely, Vice-President for Research, Innovation and Impact at University College Dublin, and the subject of our headliner interview. Professor Feely and her team are a great example of linking academia to entrepreneurship in a very real, results focussed way. This feature is part of a special feature on the growing bio-economy in Ireland, and we also feature stories about the work that Coillte, NUI Galway and Glanbia are doing in a fast emerging focus for our industry. But it’s not only Ireland, we also have features on SpecialChem’s digital focus, a look at the Awards winners from World Bio Markets 2018, financial advice from a leading investor, an interview with fast growing Swedish bio-plastics pioneers Trifilon and much more.
