Marine Biobased Specialties

MBBS logo.jpg
The Marine Bio-based Products research group focuses on research into the substances contained in algae, seaweeds and (salt-tolerant) plants (in the sea and on land) and their evaluation. Refining resources into useful ingredients is in line with our development into a sustainable, bio-based and circular economy. The research group carries out research with an evident chemical component (refining, modification, application) and fits in with an environment orientated towards applied research. Thanks to its nature and character, the Marine Bio-based Products research group has an especially good connection with our Sustainable Dynamic Delta.
