Published on 2012-11-20. Author : SpecialChem

PARIS -- SpecialChem announced recently the launch of a new online platform dedicated to bio-based chemicals and materials, available at www.specialchem4bio.com. The website will be a unique resource for both suppliers of bio-based solutions and the downstream industries who are in search of bio-based products to improve the sustainability of their offers.

"At SpecialChem, we are deeply convinced that the future of the chemical industry will be bio-based. We think it is a major need to reach superior levels of sustainability, but also to provide the innovative solutions needed by modern societies," explains Christophe Cabarry, SpecialChem Founder and CEO.

"When we talk to suppliers of bio-based chemicals and materials, they are eager to invest more in the development of new "bio"-products -- but they need to better understand which markets are ready to pay a premium and which applications would value their new bio-based material. The potential applications are so vast, that it is not an easy task."

"In turn, most industrial users of chemicals want to better understand the technically-proven and commercially-available bio-based products available today. They want to know how to replace their current non-renewable products by bio-based ones, what the compromise on technical performance could be, and finally, a clear understanding on the cost impact," Cabarry further states.

The new website offers some unique features:

  • Bio-based Products Selector: a unique bio-based chemicals and materials selector, organized by industry, chemical category and applications. More than 2,000 technical datasheets of bio-based products will already be available at launch.
  • Patent Updates: A weekly selection of the latest bio-based patents from the USPTO and the EPO.
  • Open Innovation: Featuring services of bio-based technology scouting and bio-based technology out-licensing.
  • Bio-based Market Needs: An area dedicated to market needs regarding bio-based products, publishing results of "Click N' Votes" (on-line mini-surveys) and market-oriented content written by renowned experts.
