The Technology Trends and Innovations Reinvigorating White Biotechnology

White biotechnology, sometimes called industrial biomanufacturing, is the industrial production and processing of chemicals, materials, and energy using living cell factories, like bacteria, yeast, and fungi. White biotechnology represents a more sustainable alternative to petroleum-based chemical production: one that not only decreases society's reliance on fossil fuels but also uses less energy, generates less waste, and potentially creates biodegradable products that are better for the environment.
White biotechnology is not particularly new; engineered enzymes for detergents have been produced via white biotechnology since the 1980s, and bacterial enzymes have been used as food additives for many, many years. That begs the question: why is white biotechnology so interesting now?
In this webinar, developed out of IDTechEx's new "White Biotechnology 2024-2034" report, IDTechEx sheds light on the technology trends and innovations driving white biotechnology's growth and increasing relevance. With improvements in biotechnology tools and processes comes the ability to produce numerous important products, from commodity chemicals to high performance textiles, through white biotechnology. IDTechEx will review how with these improvements, white biotechnology is emerging as a key technology enabler for the bioeconomy.
In this webinar, IDTechEx will:
  • Define the white biotechnology and its scope, versus other "colors" of biotechnology
  • Discuss several technology trends impacting white biotechnology
  • Highlight some of the biggest innovations taking place in white biotechnology
  • Analyze major market activity by leading and emerging players in white biotechnology
  • Present a 10-year market outlook for white biotechnology
