Our partners: industrial leaders, universities, governmental organisations, NGO's and new kids on the block

A partnership is all about the will to cooperate to achieve mutual goals. Both with the organisation but just as important with the people. We have partnered with established industrial companies, public organisations and innovative technology entrepreneurs – often the new kids on the block.
Biondoil finds pride in the growing number of high quality partnerships. People who share our vision and determination to find ways to stop climate change and create a better life for all. We inspire, motivate and challenge each other to strive for better than our individual best.

Below you will find a growing list of our partners describing themselves in their own words. We just added a few words why we cherish each of these partnerships.

Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy

“The Ministry promotes the Netherlands as a country of enterprise with a strong international competitive position and an eye for sustainability. It is committed to creating an excellent entrepreneurial business climate, by creating the right conditions and giving entrepreneurs room to innovate and grow. By paying attention to nature and the living environment. By encouraging cooperation between research institutes and businesses. This is how we enhance our leading positions in agriculture, industry, services and energy and invest in a powerful, sustainable country.”

The Ministry is responsible for setting policies that reflect the climate goals set by international agreements and national ambitions. We have been in touch with the ministry for many years and they have supported us through their network and contacts and with subsidy for our feasibility study.

DSM

“Depleting natural resources and the consequences of greenhouse gas emissions means that, more than ever, there‘s an urgent need for clean energy solutions that don’t cost the earth. However, when it comes to productivity and cost-efficiency, the biofuels industry has struggled to close the gap on traditional energy sources. As a leading innovator in the ethanol space, DSM was well placed to offer a solution.”

Royal DSM is a global, purpose-led, science-based company active in Nutrition, Health and Sustainable Living. Fitting its mission & vision DSM has defined a strong ambition to contribute to the efforts of taking on climate change. Several of their core processes for the production and use of yeast and enzymes blend perfectly with our core biofuel and chemical technology to aim for better economics and an even better environmental impact.

Port Authority of Rotterdam

“The objective of the Port of Rotterdam Authority is to enhance the port’s competitive position as a logistics hub and world-class industrial complex. Not only in terms of size, but also with regard to quality. The Port Authority is therefore leading the transition to sustainable energy and it is committed to digitalisation in order to make the port, and the supply chain, more efficient.”

The Port of Rotterdam is one of the leading ports in the world with a strong ambition to become a global leader in environmental industrial solutions that benefit all of the stakeholders within the port. They have embraced our project and our ambitions from the early start of our endeavour with finances, know-how and contacts.

Uniper Benelux

“What makes an energy company sustainable? A clear vision, strong relations with stakeholders, and a commitment to addressing adverse impacts transparently are key. But so is a willingness to adapt and, more importantly, to be a positive force for change. We call it “Generating Change”—inside our company, in the communities near our facilities, and along our value chain. We’re committed to deploying innovations that keep the energy supply secure and affordable while also protecting the earth’s climate. And doing what we can to promote better socio-economic conditions where we operate.”

Uniper is a main energy supplier within the Port of Rotterdam on the Maasvlakte. They too are challenged to look at their business model and assess their socio-economic impact. We have teamed we them to up to look into a co-siting concept in which we will use several of their utilities in exchange for a bio-based co-incineration product called lignin.

IV Group

“The bio-based economy promises new value chains, a competitive edge and a new playing field. Scaling-up bio-based processes and applications from a pilot plant to a full-scale plant has specific challenges. How do you successfully complete such a process? Iv-Industrie, provides coaching to ensure that innovation processes result in a convincing business case. A clear procedure supports the development of innovations from the R&D to the engineering phase in order to arrive at the appropriate scale.”

The IV Group is a highly experienced engineering company based in The Netherlands that shares our core value: make an impact on climate change through technologies. Together with our technology partners they evaluate, calculate and scrutinise the technologies we use.

ENI Versalis

“Advanced biofuels, such as cellulosic ethanol, have been worldwide identified as key components in the decarbonization of the transport sector and an increasingly number of policy framework are promoting their deployment at a large scale. The PROESA® technology has been developed from 2006 to target the growing advanced biofuels market”

From the very early stages of our project we were impressed with the drive and the process implementation of the technology and the people behind it. Like us ENI embraces the challenge to make a difference. Their technology is at the core of our study and we jointly work on a feasibility study to validate the business model.

Municipality of Rotterdam

“The scale of the challenges and the speed in which Rotterdam is tackling energy transition and sustainability requires innovative thinking and decisive action.”

PPR Power Plant Rotterdam

“PPR embraces a contemporary and committed vision consistent with total integration of sustainable development issues into its activities to the point where these become powerful drivers for business. PPR makes it possible to seize a very real corporate positioning opportunity via commercial offerings that respond effectively to today’s environmental and social challenges. Although it is essential that economic, environmental and social considerations provide a unifying corporate thread, regardless of industry sector, the social role and purpose of companies must be the focus for careful consideration by major corporates. Their size, international presence and breadth of resources impose such a responsibility on these large-scale organizations.”
