Agrobiobase provides web showcase of bio-based products

As part of their global networking activities, the Bioindustrial Innovation Centre and Sustainable Chemistry Alliance have aligned with Agrobiobase, an online database listing commercial bio-based products around the world.

Maintained and supported by the competitiveness cluster Industries & Agro-Resources (IAR), based in Laon Cedex, France, the website contains a directory of bioproducts and the companies producing them. The database currently features more than 300 products, for 120 companies.

“Aside from articles and studies, Agrobiobase also posts the latest industry news including features on new bio-based products available in the market as well as regulatory updates,” says Jean Bausset, contact person for Project Agrobiobase.

The website accounts 60,000 annual consultations, and is available in French and English. Visit www.agrobiobase.com

The main database is divided into two sections – biomaterials and biochemicals.

Supplier info and technical data on bioproducts like bioplastics, biopolymers, natural fibers, and biocomposites, can be found in the Biomaterials database.

Suppliers and technical data of biosolvents, biosurfactants, biolubricants, chemical intermediates, resins, and other biobased ingredients can be found in the biochemicals database.

Agrobiobase also publishes a newsletter which highlights new products listed in the database, provides a summary of the latest industry news, and lists the suppliers that have registered in the website. Site visitors can subscribe to the newsletter at no cost.

Companies can register their biobased products in Agrobiobase by creating an account (a paid service). They can add their company profiles, technical data and contact details in Agrobiobase in this way.
