BioQuest Alliance

BioQuest Alliance (BQA) is a company currently in the start-up phase focussed on developing a series of facilities worldwide, producing clean energy in the form of biofuels, transitionary (including maritime) fuels, and electricity, from plastic and organic (food) waste and with a vision to build and inspire a better, more resourceful, and sustainable world for future generations. Several sites have currently been planned along with a strategy to tackle (i) waste, (ii) green and transitionary fuels, and (iii) the provision of electricity locally, nationally, and ultimately worldwide. It is an ambitious crossover of multiple technologies in a clear and profitable business model, to accelerate - and profit from - a global green-power revolution. Each BQA facility comprises three main phases, each complementing the last, and improving the overall efficiency and value of the facility, with a key goal to turn each BQA facility into an energetic, scientific, and waste-processing hub in its respective region(s).

BlueBurn

As a platform, we cater to two sets of customers: algae biomass buyers and algae producers/suppliers. Both face substantial uncertainty, risks, and information gaps, impeding innovation and scalability. Buyers encounter challenges in finding reliable sources that meet their demands efficiently. Algae, a low-carbon resource, aligns with the Paris Agreement goals. On the flip side, suppliers grapple with market access issues. They struggle to produce products that fit the market and encounter unsold stock, insufficient information for strategic decisions, financial shortages, and survival struggles. The disconnection between buyers and suppliers impedes innovation, survival, and scale-up efforts.
