The technology seeker specialises in the research, development, production and sales of value-added components obtained through the extraction, isolation and purification of compounds from raw materials. Sustainability is key to their business and they are interested to identify “green” / sustainable manufacturing approaches that they could adopt for producing triglycerides (i.e. beyond the extraction of triglycerides from agricultural crops), preferably with fatty acid chains between C8 – C24.
The client has global processing operations with well-established customer base and market access. They are open to exploring different ways of working with technology developers ranging from collaborative research and development projects for earlier-stage technologies; to licensing of technology with high technical readiness; and longer-term investment (e.g. joint-ventures or mergers / acquisition).
The client is actively searching for technologies and approaches for manufacturing sustainably-produced triglycerides of saturated carbon chains between C8 – C24.
Examples of technologies of interest include (but are not limited to):
Production of triglycerides
Carbon / hydrogen capture and generation methods for use as feedstocks for making triglycerides
Ideally, the potential solutions would have the following benefits:
Industries that may have relevant technologies include biofuel and sustainable fuels, food and beverage, consumer healthcare, personal care, green chemicals, and biorefineries.
