Bioextrax, represented by CEO Edvard Hall, was inaugurated as the winner of the Green Chemistry challenge at the Sustainable Industry Challenge, Chemport Europe Edition 2020.
Bioextrax successfully solved the task put up by Suiker Unie, a major sugar producer in Europe, to convert sucrose and use it as a feedstock for biopolymers. Bioextrax’s unique platform technology that utilizes bacteria to turn organic materials into bio-based and bio-degradable plastic granules received an overwhelming reception from the competition’s participants and jury during the two-day event in Groningen.
The competition itself received over 200 entries, of which 40 innovative companies from 13 different countries were invited to the final event on 7-8 January 2020. The event was held by Economic Board Groningen in collaboration with Campus Groningen, NOM, Groningen Seaports, and the provincial executives of Groningen and Drenthe.
