About Us

The Bioeconomy Consultants

NNFCC is a specialist Bioeconomy consultancy based in York, UK.

We believe biobased technologies are a key component of the low carbon economy, creating sustainable business opportunities for feedstock suppliers, technology and project developers, manufacturers and investors.

We take an integrated approach to bioenergy, biofuels and biobased products, providing a holistic view of technology, policy and market development, enabling better decision making and strategy development.


Established by the UK Government in 2003 as the National Non-Food Crops Centre, NNFCC has grown to become a leading UK consultancy focused on understanding biorenewable markets and technologies.


We offer global companies pioneering consultancy services and act as an advisor to UK Government, providing technical, market and policy expertise on the conversion of biomass and waste to bioenergy, biofuels and biobased products.

Our services are tailored to give organisations a better understanding of both the opportunities, and how to overcome the challenges, presented by the growing bioeconomy.


The NNFCC team has a broad blend of skills and industrial backgrounds covering agriculture, biology, environmental science, energy engineering, chemistry, material and polymer science.

This diversity gives us a unique perspective on the development of the bioeconomy, the interaction between energy, fuel and material markets and the importance of environmental and social impacts.
