FUTURE BRH VISION

The Future BRH vision is to develop innovative technologies for high-value manufacturing to sustainably produce pharmaceuticals, chemicals and materials.

3 KEY SECTORS

The EPSRC/BBSRC funded Future Biomanufacturing Research Hub is a national biomanufacturing accelerator, coordinating UK academic, HVM catapult, and industrial capabilities to enable the complete biomanufacturing innovation pipeline.

Future BRH is developing new underpinning technologies based on industrial biotechnology (IB) to enable efficient, sustainable and innovative bio-based manufacturing in three key sectors:

 

  • PHARMACEUTICALS
  • VALUE-ADDED CHEMICALS
  • ENGINEERING MATERIALS

BIO-BASED ECONOMY

As set out in the UK Bioeconomy Strategy published in 2018, the bioeconomy represents the economic potential of harnessing the power of bioscience, using renewable biological resources to replace fossil resources in innovative products, processes and services.

The aims of Future BRH are to accelerate the delivery of economically attractive, robust and scalable biomanufacturing processes to meet societal and commercial demand through industrial partnerships and co-created research programmes.

Future BRH is generating novel microbial production routes, supported by in silico design tools, automation, and state-of-the-art analytics with advanced data handling that allow accurate high throughput verification of products and processes. It is taking a leading role in further developing these technologies, supporting clean growth by connecting innovation in industrial biotechnology to the UK manufacturing base to deliver drop-in solutions and new sustainable processes to industry, whilst providing training and skills to support a transition to a bio-based economy.

CLEAN GROWTH

The long-term vision of the Future Biomanufacturing Research Hub is for a paradigm shift from petrochemical based processes to safer, cleaner and greener bio-based manufacturing routes, enabling UK manufacturing to be at the global forefront of Clean Growth.

THE TEAM AND PARTNERS

Future BRH aims to be an internationally unique UK asset, with a concentration of Hub expertise, a highly appropriate network of complementary spoke partners and close industrial collaborations.
