Recycling, upcycling and downcycling engineering to improve the value chain of waste and secondary feedstocks
Summary:
A well-established Austrian company offers solutions in the field of strategic research, innovation, scale-up, engineering and turnkey plant construction. The focus lies on green technology solutions to improve the value chain of waste and secondary feedstocks. The goal is to recycle and upcycle unused waste streams in food and biomass processing, as well as rendering. Partners are sought for licencing, technical cooperation agreement, commercial agreement and possibly research cooperation.
Description:
The Austrian company is specialised in green technology solutions and seeks customers and partners who wish to improve their value chain of waste and secondary feedstocks. Specifically, the interdisciplinary team is eager to work with companies, start-ups and research organisations in the field of food, waste and biomass processing, as well as rendering industries.

In recent projects the company has worked on numerous topics including: hydrolysis of proteins in the rendering industry, upcycling of free fatty acids/glycerides in different variants, production of algae for the food industry and upcycling via pyrolysis. The common thread in all projects was up/down/re-cycling of feedstocks which lead to a generation of value out of waste streams, new product families, or savings due to increased process efficiency.

The company´s approach is based on an interdisciplinary team of experts and high-end engineering expertise supported by state-of-the-art testing and laboratory facilities. This unique combination forms the missing industrial link between an idea and its successful economic execution. The company offers decades of international engineering experience in optimising sustainable material usage, minimising waste streams, as well as chemical and biochemical synthesis.

The services offered could be attractive for:

· Technology owners to further develop existing technologies and processes
· Companies seeking support in all stages of scale up (idea evaluation, in-house early-stage prototyping, technical due diligence, flexible laboratory capabilities, demo plant/pilot plant engineering, commissioning)
· Project owners who need a conceptual design paired with an economic evaluation
· Companies in need of support/partnership throughout the entire development process or at a specific point within the process
· Companies looking for a larger network in order to expand into new markets/areas of application

The team provides support in every phase of development, ranging from plausibility checks of ideas, through economic applications of technological inventions, to building turnkey plants worldwide and can work in a very flexible way regardless of the development stage of a potential project. The company has significant expertise in international plant construction and presents numerous success stories from idea to industrial implementation. The team has the necessary decision making, management and technical expertise and cooperates with a global network of suppliers and specialists. For a project in the field of food, waste and biomass processing, as well as rendering industries the company offers adaptable and flexible support in the areas of:

o Optimisation of raw material usage
o Upcycling of low value waste chains and secondary feedstocks
o Minimisation of waste streams
o Chemical and bio-chemical synthesis
o Engineering and plant construction

The Austrian company is primarily interested in commercial agreements in which projects with scale up potential need technical assistance and economic guidance. Moreover technical cooperation agreements can be envisaged in which support and expertise can be shared in the co-development of promising solutions. It is also interested in licence agreements with partners who have interesting solutions in the green tech field. The company would also be open to working with universities or research institutes in a research cooperation should a suitable project present itself. However, the other methods of cooperation are preferred.
Advantages and Innovations:
- flexible partner offering support according to variable needs
- cooperation offered in any and all stages of product development and engineering
- specialist in upscaling waste stream processes
- conducting technical due diligence for innovative projects
- profound knowledge in evaluating value in secondary feedstock
- access to an extensive network of technical specialists in interdisciplinary teams
- provision of contract research from small to large scale manufacture
- missing link between the idea, economic application and industrial realisation
- one-stop-shop with more than 70 worldwide reference projects of international plant construction

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
The Austrian company is looking for customers and partners. Customers are problem owners, who need specialist support to scale up and speed up their ideas and developments. Technical cooperation agreements and/or commercial agreements with technical assistance are sought in these cases. Partners are technology owners, research centres, start-ups, scale-ups and universities, who are problem solvers in the field of green tech solutions. Licence agreements could be envisaged in this case. While it is not the primary aim of the company, research cooperation agreements would not be excluded should the right opportunity arise with a university or research institute.

Partners should be active in sectors where the Austrian company has expertise, namely food processing, waste, rendering and biomass processing. The project phase/TRL (technology readiness level) is not important as the Austrian company can offer support at various stages from ideas and prototypes to lab testing and turnkey solutions.
