Microbial Encapsulation: Technology Horizon Scan and Competitive Landscape Map

Microbial encapsulation is the practice of concentrating beneficial microbes used in water/wastewater treatment processes into polymer “cages” or capsules. It is claimed to have game-changing potential in terms of destroying soluble wastes across a range of applications. It has not had large-scale commercial acceptance yet, but industry interest is increasing. The potential benefits are: 1)…

Producing Bio-Based Plastics from Wastewater

The global plastics market was estimated to be worth $600 billion in 2016. Bio- based plastics currently account for approximately 1% of the market, or $600 million, but are predicted to grow at up to 25-35% over the coming 3-5 years, with production predicted to reach 4.7 million tons by 2018. Until recently bio-based plastic…

High Purity Water: Opportunities in Advanced Manufacturing

BlueTech’s latest Insight Report presents detailed analysis of the ultrapure water (UPW) market. The total market for ultrapure water systems and components is expected to exceed $12B by 2026.
