Producing high value products from low value resources

18 May 2017

The Bioresouce Processing Alliance (BPA) has partnered with the School of Biological Sciences and is working with some of New Zealand’s top scientists to harness the hidden value in the biological raw materials they process.

The BPA aims to expand New Zealand’s export market opportunities through the creation of high value products from low value biological resources.

These resources are often secondary by-products from primary industries. The BPA's goal is to devise ways to increase the volume of high value materials derived from secondary bioprocessing streams through smart science and technology. By reducing processing costs, and utilising greater volumes of primary resources to generate a wider range of products, they can help make a greater contribution to New Zealand’s economy.
