NNFCC is a
strategic consultancy with in-depth knowledge of the bioeconomy. We offer clients a
wealth of experience in the bioenergy and biofuels markets and the growing biobased
products sector. The team has
international experience to guide businesses through policy hurdles and assist
in the development of technology and international markets.
The bioeconomy embraces the economic, social and environmental activity and impacts associated with the use and conversion of biomass into energy and products, and the use of biotechnology as a research, process and environmental technology.
The bioeconomy has the potential to supply a large array of biobased products, fitting all forms of circular thinking from reuse to closed and open loop recycling. It can be viewed as an enabler for an optimised circular economy beyond the current largely linear fossil based economy.
At NNFCC we firmly believe in a future where biobased technologies are a key component of the low carbon circular economy.
Our mission? To provide sector leading strategic business consultancy; analysing, explaining and de-risking the bioeconomy for our clients.
Established by the UK Government in 2003 as the National Non-Food Crops Centre, NNFCC has grown to become a leading commercial bioeconomy consultancy serving an international client base across bioenergy and bio-based products.
Our initial focus on the development of the rural economy, through the development of industrial crop applications, has widened over the years to embrace climate change mitigation through biofuel and bioenergy deployment. We cover land and marine based bio-based feedstock from agriculture and forestry through to municipal and industrial wastes.
We are driven by our belief that the bioeconomy will create sustainable business opportunities and deliver wide ranging environmental and societal benefits.
Our objective is simple - to provide clients with a strategic view of feedstock, technology, policy and market development across the bioeconomy, enabling them to make informed business decisions and develop sustainable business strategies.
We have successfully delivered projects to a wide range of clients including agricultural businesses, biotechnology developers, power companies, chemical producers and product manufacturers, brand owners and retailers, Universities and Research Funding Agencies and both regional and national Governments.
