Today's environmental and sustainability concerns are on top of the list of priorities for the industry, society and governments. The urgent need to solve problems of air pollution and climate change is challenging the industry to meet new quality and environment standards for production, supply and product development as well as waste reclying. Green technologies, IoT, smart apps and the cleantech industry are fast emerging not only from the traditional industry but also from the Startups and research organizations that launch disruptive and very innovate solutions and products into the market. SmartCities are developing fast while launching new technology calls to the industry, Startups and research organizations. There is a great amount of research funding available for any player in the are of green technologies such as desalination, solid waste management, recycling etc. The demand for innovation in environmental friendly technology is growing and there are lots of opportunities for cooperation and join development.

Waxes are typically make up of linear or branched-chain hydrocarbon chains and can contain polar functionalities like e.g. ester or amide groups. Their importance has been well recognized, especially with the growing demand of modern consumer products like packaging, cosmetics and pharmaceutical. Plant-based or renewable waxes are also gaining favor in recent years due to higher sustainability compared to fossil based waxes. We are seeking sustainable green oxidative cleavage process that can convert renewable ester waxes, like rice bran wax and sugar cane wax, to similar end products obtained by conventional processes. Many oxidative cleavage processes are already established in the industry, but not many are eco-friendly. Furthermore, with the shifting focus from fossil waxes to plant-based waxes, alternative oxidative technologies do result in chemically different products from different plants. Here the company is keen to explore modern bleaching technologies or to work with technology-partners with bleaching experiences on renewable materials. The company is open to partners from any country and to a variety of cooperation. Research cooperation agreements with research organizations might yield into publications or consequent R&D contracts. Depending on the stage of technology readiness, an out-licensing of the process is possible or a joint venture might be a way to further develop for feasibility studies for a pilot scale up.
