This edition of the Industrial Bioprocessing TOE depicts innovations in enzymes in solid waste management. The exponentially increasing rates of solid waste generated on a per capita basis has drawn the industry’s attention. This TOE features some of the solutions developed for managing various categories of solid waste using enzymes namely: municipal solid waste (MSW), agricultural waste, food waste, and plastic waste.
The Industrial Bioprocessing TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, processes and strategic insights of industries involving bioprocessing, including innovations in the development and production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, alternative fuels, chemical feedstocks, food and beverages, and consumer products.
The Sustainable Energy cluster provides global insights and intelligence on a wide variety of disruptive emerging technologies and platforms ranging from energy storage, advanced batteries, solar and wind energy, to unconventional oil, bioenergy, geothermal energy, and energy transmission.
