Matchmaking Biobased Reststromen 2020

Matching the Dutch side streams with the Swedish market and technologies


The Dutch Nutrient Platform, Dutch Biorefinery Cluster, Cleantech region Östergötland and the Swedish Processum technology cluster together organise an on-line matchmaking on the valorisation of biobased side streams. Aim is to match the many still undervalorised Dutch side streams with the Swedish market and technologies.

On the 2nd of November we welcome all Dutch biobased organisations to meet and match with our Swedish partners in our on-line meeting with 1-to-1 breakout sessions.

13:00   Introduction

13:15   2 minute pitches from all participating companies:

  • Waste streams suppliers
  • Technology / market suppliers

14:15   Break

14:30   1-to-1 Matchmaking (3x20 minutes)

15:30   Plenary session

15:40   Break

15:50   1-to-1 Matchmaking (3x15 minutes)

16:35   Plenary session - conclusion

16:50   End of meeting

The participating Swedish companies are:

  • Biototal: is working with restproducts from society, using sustainable circular soultions for used resorces to reenter the nutrient cycle between urban and farming communities. They focus on finding individual effective systemsolutions for their customers using knowledge and experience within chemistry, biology, agronomy and business as their tools. They are interested in biofertilizers and other residues eg nutritious organic restproducts, that could be utilised in agriculture and soil production.
  • Econova: creates business within recycling and gardening. They take care of materials that have traditionally been seen as waste and transform these into new raw materials in the eco-cycle. By replacing finite resources, they create conditions for sustainable development. Their dream scenario: a 100% organic by-product or product that meets the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency's rules for KM ("Sensitive Soil") for which Econova receives at least 4 € per tonne, freely delivered to their intended production facility in Sweden
  • RISE Processum: focuses on biorefinery research and development in close collaboration with industry, from laboratory to demonstration scale with a focus on lignocellulosic biomass and biobased waste streams. Processum's competence and pilot equipment make it possible to do development projects or produce chemicals and materials for further testing and development according to orders from different parties. They coordinate and participate in collaboration projects and perform contract research. Processum is also a cluster manager and the creative hub for an innovation initiative aiming to realise new biorefinary processes and products for a sustainable society in collaboration between industry, academia, institutes and government. Processum is a part of RISE Research Institutes of Sweden. They're looking for partners in the development and realisation of new biobased products and processes for a sustainable society. Industry, entrepreneurs, tech start-up & scale-up companies, RTO's, users of biobased products etc.
  • C-Green: has a revolutionary new way to convert wet biomass into biofuel without use of externally produced heat. Wastewater sludge, industrial sludge, digestate can be coverted to solid HTC biocoal.  C-Green has developed a robust industrial-strength process to recycle sludge into biocoal and biogas. They use a proven method – hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) combined with wet oxidation to make it into what is probably the most efficient sludge disposal method for the 21st century. The produced biocoal can be used as solid biofuel, soil additive and potentially as activated carbon. C-green would like to get in touch with all companies that generate sludge that is difficult to dewater.
  • Biocompost: solves organic waste problems with automated smart composting reactors. The bioreactor is an in-vessel composting system that allows you to rapidly compost solid organic waste and turn it into hygienized nutritious soil in just 3 to 7 days and offers a complete “green” solution and competitive Return on Investment. The reactors are available in 7 different sizes, the largest 3 by 18-meter processing 30 m3 of organic waste per day. Their bioreactor composts solid organic waste from restaurants, grocery stores, households, factories, processing plants, farms, municipalities etc. To get an effective hygienization process the biological materials need to be mixed in a proper way. In addition to the soil production facilities a network for soil distribution must also be available.
  • Organofuel Sweden AG: has a novel technology for conversion of short chain alcohols to biofuels, or to branched aldehydes, such as butanal, croton aldehyde and 2-ethylhexanal. They're currently evaluating a pilot plant for biofuels products, with plans of a large scale commercial plant in the following years. They're now looking for partners interested in butanal, croton aldehyde and/or 2-ethylhexanal (or derivates of these products) for implementation of their proprietary technology towards the chemical market.
