The IBLF is a dedicated team to drive and support uptake of industrial biotechnology (IB) in the UK manufacture of chemicals and materials.

£12bn potential UK market for IB in chemicals manufacture by 2025.

Many commercialised UK manufactured IB products and processes already, including >300 biocatalytic processes; >400 fermentations; >1000 bio-based products.
