Bio Market Insight Awards

Recognising and rewarding the innovators in our industry

The 4th annual awards ceremony, took place at World Bio Markets 2019

Innovation is at the heart of our community, and can take many forms. For 2019 there were 6 awards categories, and the winners were be announced in the annual awards ceremony on the 2nd April.

BIO-BASED PRODUCT OF THE YEAR

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.

BIO-BASED CHEMICAL INNOVATION OF THE YEAR

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.

BEST USE OF ALTERNATIVE FEEDSTOCKS

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.


SUSTAINABILITY COMMITMENT *New for 2019*

Rewarding consumer facing brands that have striven to make their supply chains greener in the past twelve months by replacing petro-based chemicals or materials with bio-based or sustainable alternatives.
