Five Top Bioeconomy Tweeters

Source: Wikipedia
At Sustainability Consult, we are proud to have a number of clients in the bioeconomy space, who are helping decarbonise our economy through innovative fossil-free products.  We’ll be exhibiting once again at the World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology from 12-15 May in Philadelphia, the world’s largest industrial biotechnology event.

The wider public is still not aware of the advantages of bio-based products.  Yet to create a market, consumers need to call on brands to increase the bio-based percentage of their products. 

Investing in materials made responsibly from biomass and other renewable, bio-based materials is a crucial step towards reducing society’s dependence on petro-based products.  The European Commission added its voice to the debate when it recently released a short, animated video on the basics of the bioeconomy.

To get you started, here are a few Twitter accounts you should definitely be following for the latest from the bioeconomy.

1/ Doris de Guzman, Writer at Tecnon OrbiChem and Blogger at Green Chemicals (@DGreenblogger)
Former ICIS green chemistry correspondent, Doris is a prolific tweeter, updating her followers with everything going on in the bioeconomy world – news, events, reports and much more.

2/ Joost Dubois, Director Branding, Bio-based Products & Services, Royal DSM (@joostdubois)
In charge of global communications and branding of bio-based products (or as he puts it, Biotech Story Teller & Chief Promises Officer!) DSM’s Joost is one of the leading voices in the space.  He plays nicely with others with lots of interaction on hot topics, particularly on EU-US regulation of biofuels.

3/ Adrian Higson, Executive at NNFCC (@biobasedchem)
NNFCC are bioeconomy consultants based in the UK and Adrian’s Twitter account keeps his followers up-to-date on what’s happening in Britain and beyond – as well as the many bioeconomy events he attends.

4/ Marcel Lubben, President of Reverdia (@marcellubben)
Formerly DSM’s main man on bio, Marcel Lubben now heads up bio-based joint venture Reverdia and shares updates on the bioeconomy and follows company developments in the space.

5/ Me! Kathryn Sheridan, CEO of Sustainability Consult (@kathrynsheridan)
Oh the arrogance of it all… I nominate myself as ‘Bioeconomy Twitterati’.  As CEO of Sustainability Consult, I tweet on a range of sustainability issues but none more so than the contribution the bioeconomy can make.  I’m very engaged in the bio-based sector and try to keep my followers up to date.
