Bioconomy.net provides an unbiased source of news and intelligence through diligent research and interviews with leaders from all across the bio-based economy. The blog recently unveiled the BioViews Interview Series, where decision makers and influential people give us their take on the latest news and trends.

Amid announcements of high-profile IPOs, a slew of exciting joint ventures, and large acquisitions, the industrial biotechnology value chain is now quickly shifting into coherence. Mark Bünger, Research Director at Lux Research, contextualized the growth of this dynamic sector in a recent interview with BioConomy.
Here are a few of the main take-aways:
- Industrial biotech venture funding has peaked. Money is needed for scale-up and the companies that are getting it are ready for that step.
- In the long term, ethanol won't work as a fuel, but as feedstock for high-value chemicals and plastics.
- The development of cellulosic biomass and next generation feedstocks is coming on strong, and soon true upstream flexibility will take hold.
