This study was commissioned to consider the potential strategic impact of biorefining on the process industries in North East England.
This study confirms that the North East’s unique combination of research and process skills, assets, logistics and business infrastructure, all established to support the traditional chemical industry in the region, can be developed over time to be a competitive centre for biorefining and the associated support activities. The opportunity exists for the North East to develop competitive, and in some areas leading, capabilities for the production of chemicals from renewable feedstocks.
