Highlights of Bio-based Business Opportunities



Bio Environment

In today’s trend, there is an urgent need for industries and power plants to sustainably reduce and effectively treat their effluents and CO2 Algae and Biochar (charcoal obtained from plant matter) can be used for reducing carbon dioxide in atmosphere. Algae is also used for wastewater treatment.

Wastewater treatment

Biobased treatment of industrial waste water and other waste water is a fast growing business opportunity worldwide and in India.

Carbon Capture

A range of avenues are being explored for carbon capture, especially from concentrated sources such as power plants. Some of these avenues - especially sustainable avenues such as algae-based carbon capture - could represent excellent business opportunities.

Biochar

Biochar, a product obtained from the pyrolysis of biomass, is gaining increasing business attention owing to its use as starting material to make activated carbon, a sustainable filtration material.

Bioenergy

Increasing carbon footprint and depleting conventional fuel resources are making large businesses and companies shift to bio based energy resources. Algae/castor based biofuels, oil from plastics and other plant based biomass (briquettes and pellets) are some notable energy resource areas to venture into.

Biofuel

With the price of crude once again increasing, biofuels (both biodiesel and ethanol) are beginning to look as attractive business opportunities once more, especially given India's large reliance on imports for petrol and diesel.

Biopower

Biomass based power plants are carbon neutral making them a natural choice for companies wishing to reduce their carbon footprint. While challenges exist on feedstock and cost fronts, one can still expect significant investments into this power source for the foreseeable future in India and worldwide.

Bioheat

Biomass-based industrial heating (in boilers, hot air generators and kilns) is expected to see dramatic increases as the prices of alternatives fuels such as coal, natural gas, diesel and LPG increase, and as decreasing carbon footprint becomes a bigger aspiration for many Indian businesses. India is blessed with a large amounts of agri waste that can be used as feedstock for these power plants.

Biomaterials

Increasing concerns over the use of plastics have increased the demand for sustainable alternatives to plastics such as bioplastics, biopolymers and other plastic alternatives such as bagasse based, jute based and wheat straw based products.

Bioplastics and biopolymers

While bioplastics and biopolymers currently represent just over 1% of the total plastics market (by volume), they hold significant growth potential given the importance given to environmental protection from the fast growing plastic pollution. A range of end uses (all the way from retail packaging to hugh end medical surgery) will see increasing use of bioplastics, especially bio-degradable plastics.

Other biobased packaging

Beyond bioplastics, a range of biomass based packaging solutions are emerging in India - especially packaging from bagasse and rice husk, and innovative bio-based products for select segments such as foodware and cutlery. Expect exciting growth in these segments in India and in countries such as China, EU and United States.

Sustainable Fashion

Fashion (including textiles and apparel) is a $3 trillion industry worldwide and there's a clear movement within many segments within this industry to go green. This represents exciting opportunities for many Indian businesses which already are operating in the fashion and textile segments.

  • Biopaints and coatings-The residential paints and coatings industry have been working on sustainable feedstock for quite a while now. What's likely to accelerate this market even further is the increasing use of eco-coatings and eco-paints in commercial and industrial sectors, including in sectors such as shipping and automotive.
  • Biolubricants and greases -Natural feedstock such as castor oil (in which India is the # producer globally) can make lubricants and greases far more eco-friendly. Eco-friendly greases and lubricants already exist, but their use is likely to accelerate to much higher levels in the future, implying consequent business opportunities for India.
  • Biosolvents-Green solvents made from natural biomass are replacing crude oil-based solvents. In addition to paints and coatings, these bio-solvents are finding increasing use in diverse sectors such as printing inks, cosmetics, personal care products, sealants, cases, pharmaceuticals and more.
  • Biohealth

    With increasing individual health and environmental concerns globally, many companies are looking for bio-based health products such as nutraceuticals, natural food ingredients, natural flavours & fragrances and cosmetics. Algae based health products are an interesting sector to look for. Castor oil is also an excellent source for natural cosmetics globally.

    Nutraceuticals and Food

    Nutraceuticals is a $200+ billion market worldwide growing at a healthy CAGR of over 7%. In India too, nutraceuticals is a $5 billion market and growing at a 8% CAGR. A range of feedstock native to India - algae, herbs and more - are finding its way into nutraceuticals, thereby implying a significant business potential.

    Cosmetics, Flavours and Fragrances

    A range of bio-based feedstock native to India is beginning to replace synthetics in cosmetics, flavours and fragrances. With the cosmetics end users worldwide becoming increasingly eco-conscious, expect the natural flavours and fragrances markets to grow significantly in the near future.

    Pharmaceuticals

    While bio-based materials have been used in the pharma industry for a long time, recent trends have shown many extensions and enhancements of such use. Examples of new trends include use of algae (which has over 30000 different strains!) in pharma and related wellness products - and India can boast a vast biodiversity in algae.

    Biochemical

    Owing to increasing carbon emission regulations and other health and environmental concerns, many companies in the consumer and specialty chemicals sector are looking for bio based feedstock. The major bio-based raw materials used in the production of green chemicals are vegetable oils, animal fats, sugar and starch, and bio-ethanol.

    Renewable chemicals

    With many end user segments keen on going eco-friendly, a range of chemicals - especially specialty chemicals - will see significant transformation to more sustainable raw materials. And this represents an enormous business opportunity for Indian and international companies.
