“To reach major markets and big buyers, you need to guarantee them the large quantities they require for production. Without confidence from the buyer that the can be delivered, there will be no deal.”
Welcome to Issue #6 of Bio-Based World Quarterly, your dedicated guide to the latest news and essential business developments for bio-based chemicals, brands and products. The above quote is from Patrick Schiffers, the Chief Executive Officer of Synvina, a new joint venture between BASF and Avantium, and the subject of a feature in this edition. What Patrick encapsulates is one of the principle challenges facing the industry - put simply - how do you increase your levels of bio-based production as well as providing it to your buyer cheaply and consistently, potentially forever? If you cannot scale-up, it is going to be a tough sell. In our latest issue we focus on this area, with contributions from those with fantastic business models like UPM Biochemicals and Reebok, true innovators like LEGO, financial wizards Capricorn Venture Capital and many more who I hope can give you some insight and inspiration in this crucial area.
