A product currently available to purchase that is derived from plants or other renewable agricultural, marine, and forestry materials and provides an improved alternative to conventional petroleum derived products – such as developments in price, functionality and quality.
An innovation involving enzymes, platform or intermediate chemicals derived from biomass feedstocks, used to produce other chemicals, such as new method of production or technique, and with the ability to display a benefit and progress for the industry long-term.
The use will focus on research, development, demonstration and of course innovation. Normally more than just changing the raw materials, it can require new supply and preparation infrastructure, fresh growing and harvesting techniques, new chemical processing technologies or access to new partnerships.
