Outperforming oil with trees: Planning a biorefinery

In the first advanced commercial biorefinery in New Zealand, Futurity will use innovative techniques to break down pine trees into their chemical building blocks.


They form the raw materials to create resins and plastics which can replace oil-derivatives.

The young company is presenting wood as a renewable alternative to oil and backing up its benefits with credible data from an LCA. The LCA took out the guesswork and enabled Futurity to understand the environmental impact of their operations and materials.

Futurity’s Co-founder and CTO, Dr. Gaetano Dedual will share the value of LCA for communicating with potential investors and other stakeholders. thinkstep-anz CEO and Certified LCA Professional, Barbara Nebel will host the ‘Straight from the Horse’s Mouth’ webinar and introduce the basics of LCA.
