Client Story

Opportunity Evaluation and Technology Roadmap for Materials Informatics


The client had a large surplus of a biobased intermediate chemical to sell on the market or take a loss
on inventory and needed to find immediate offtakers as well as identify more stable markets to sell
into. The client asked Lux to think through all the potential new uses of the biobased intermediate
within a 1–2-step chemical synthetic pathway.

Solution & Value

Lux identified contact information for more than 50 potential offtakers for the biobased intermediate; the companies identified operate across various industries from fragrance to solvents to surfactants. In addition, Lux identified three potential novel opportunities in emerging chemical synthetics leading to new markets: green bio-jet fuel, clean polycarbonate, and synthetic cannabidiol oil.

Top Questions your industry peers are asking

Inquiry is a 50-minute virtual conversation between a licensed client member and a Lux expert. During this two-way consultative exchange, the Lux expert shares insights and acts as an advisor for the member’s strategic thinking or decision-making process.

Lux experts are having such conversations with clients every day to help them understand various aspects of technology innovation. Key questions innovation leaders in government and nonprofit organizations are asking about include:

How can governments balance improvements in emissions, water, land use, and waste generation against other issues, like working conditions and pay?

Do we need to fund sustainable outcomes directly, ie, with a carbon tax?

Of today’s hot technologies, which will make a real impact in five years?

How can we evaluate the level of technology and business risk carried by a start-up?
