Growing The Bioeconomy
By helping companies manufacture bioproducts from currently underused organic sources, Activatec works towards a bioeconomy and to contribute to sustainable and resource-efficient solutions to the challenges we face in food, chemicals, materials, energy production, health and environmental protection.
Working to produce and purify high-value biobased ingredients and materials from agrifood side streams, we are experienced in increasing manufacturers' product output while minimising waste.
The UK government has recently announced its ambitious bioeconomy strategy looking toward 2030, which emphasises both the financial value and social impact of the bioeconomy sector.
As well as promoting the development of eco-friendly biofuels, bioeconomies emphasise the need for sustainable food sources.
Using innovative and sustainable solutions, Activatec aims to overcome the consumption challenge faced by a growing population.
Making the most of by-products and developing biobased ingredients from renewable sources, we are reducing the need for synthetic materials in cosmetic and nutraceutical value chain.
The British Bioeconomy
The UK bioeconomy is currently worth £220 billion GVA
The bioeconomy in Britain contributes to over 5 million jobs
The UK government is aiming to create even more highly-skilled jobs, using cutting-edge research and innovation to contribute to both the bioeconomy and regional jobs
The biotechnology market size is expected to reach close to approximately £600 billion by 2024, while the global market for biorefineries is expected to rise to £550 billion by 2021
Matching this dramatic global increase in value, the British government is aiming to double the size of the UK bioeconomy to £440 billion by 2030
