For the 4th
time, the international start-up competition "Plan B - Biobased.Business.Bavaria." organized by BioCampus Straubing honored the best new business ideas in the field of bio-based solutions. Kelheim Fibres has been working with the BioCampus Straubing for many years and is a supporter of the competition, this year as prize sponsor.
In this capacity, Dr. Crnoja-Cosic, Director New Business Development, congratulated the newly founded team of Microbify GmbH, Regensburg/Germany, on their 3rd
place and presented them with a cheque for €3,000. As a spin-off from the University of Regensburg, Microbify, among other things, works on the use of old natural gas storage facilities for the production of green natural gas using extremophilic microorganisms.
Driving the change from a fossil-based to a bio-based economy is a declared goal of Kelheim Fibres GmbH, Kelheim/Germany. The manufacturer of viscose specialty fibers seeks inspiration and exchange within its own industry as well as with innovation partners from outside the industry, start-ups and science in an open innovation approach.
