Our mission: 

Sirius Consultancy International (SCI) is based in The Netherlands and operates internationally. We believe that shifting from fossil-based to bio-based is an important contribution towards making the future more sustainable and purposeful.

Our vision:

SCI creates value for its clients by developing business options through deployment of fact-based information, proven strategy development methods and experience with the entire business development process.

Trends in the biobased economy

Innovation in biotechnology and green chemistry has encouraged the developments of economic routes to both conventional and new materials. Biobased and biodegradable plastics, formulation ingredients and chemicals are produced from a variety of biological feedstocks, such as sugar, lignocellulose or gases. Also, the market place for biobased and biodegradable materials is evolving rapidly and the landscape is ever changing.

The Biobased Economy is a broad field, with numerous developments. These range from chemical technology to white biotechnology, from agricultural feedstocks to biofuels and from chemicals to bioplastics. It also includes the fields of protein transition and specialty ingredients, such as enzymes and organic acids for food- and industrial applications. The quantity of information can be quite overwhelming. This is where Sirius Consultancy International comes in.
