- Bio-based Start-up Day
- Investors will provide insight into their incentives and experiences
- Participants can reserve free booth to present products
The Bio-based Start-up Day, taking place on 7 April 2016 in Cologne, Germany, will bring start-ups, investors and industry together. High-potential start-ups from the field of bio-based materials, biotechnology and carbon capture & utilization (CCU) are invited to introduce themselves to industry and investors. Start-ups will get insider information from high-level funding experts.
Investors will provide insight into their incentives and experiences
The day will start with three presentations on the topics: “Building start-ups in the bio-based economy” and “Why invest in bio-based applications?” followed by the presentations of the start-ups. In special meeting sessions around the exhibition the participants will have the opportunity to meet the start-ups and investors in person. Investors will provide an insight into their incentives and experiences working with start-ups in the bio-based and biotech sector including the presentation of a success story. The day will end with a panel discussion.
Participants can reserve free booth to present products
Registered participants can reserve a free booth to present their products directly at the event.
Following start-ups have already been chosen to introduce themselves at the Bio-based Start-up Day:
4GENE develops and produces natural, biotechnologically engineered, activable flavour and fragrance precursors. Products are marketed as Flavor-On-Demand to flavour and fragrance customers worldwide.
Biotrem uses an organic by-product of milling (wheat husks) to produce tableware that is fully natural and fully compostable. The production process is very clean. Only husks, steam, pressure and heat are needed.
Electrochaea GmbH (DE)
Electrochaea is developing a disruptive grid-scale energy storage technology. Our power-to-gas (P2G) process converts CO2 and low-cost or stranded electricity into pipeline-grade methane for direct injection into the existing natural gas grid.
Glyconic is a developer of glycosylated polyphenols. With its state-of-the-art technology Glyconic is the preferred partner in cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industry when it comes to adapting the effectiveness, stability, solubility and bioavailability of polyphenol derivates.
Kiverdi, Inc. (US)
Kiverdi makes high-value oils and chemicals for a variety of product applications such as detergents, biomaterials and fuel additives. Kiverdi’s chemicals are sustainably produced from waste carbon and decoupled from the price fluctuations, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitics associated with commodities.
Mycoplast S.n.c. (IT)
MOGU is a start-up initiative created in January 2015 by Mycoplast, aiming to research, develop and commercialise a wide variety of bio-materials produced from mycelium and agro-industrial residues as substrates.
Nafigate Corporation, A.S. (CZ)
Hydal biotechnology – as the first technology in the world – utilizes 100% waste (used cooking oil) for the production of a bio-based polymer, polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), on the industrial scale. First pilot line and plant is being built in Suzhou in China.
NordBioChem OÜ (EE)
NordBioChem has developed a whole technological platform starting with the lactic acid fermentation technology suitable for large- scale production and has combined it with new solutions in catalytical mechanisms and chemical derivatisation technologies.
Based on space technology, Skytree has developed a patented process which re-captures CO2 directly from the ambient air. This allows providing or subtracting carbon neutral CO2 on-site, anytime, anywhere. This CO2 can in turn be used for such applications as growing plants, ventilation and water treatment.
