Betting Big in Bio-Based: How to Leverage Evolving Trends and Hedge Against Uncertainty

Over the years, the Bio-based Materials and Chemicals (BBMC) space has seen its fair share of ups and downs. In 2007, venture capital investment in the space reached a peak and the field was further buoyed by high oil prices. However, the financial crash in 2008 and influx of shale gas, changed the bio-based landscape.
