Nova Pangaea Technologies joins RSB to contribute to a net zero global economy

Nova Pangaea Technologies (NPT), a UK-based cleantech business with a proprietary patented process to convert agricultural and wood waste to biofuels and chemicals, has joined the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB) to scale their technology and help create a more sustainable world.

NPT’s REFNOVA® process converts agricultural and wood waste into high value sustainable products, such as advanced biofuels, biocarbons and biochemicals . By operating their own production facilities along with licensing this process to global clients, and blending the technology with the expert know-how of NPT’s technical and commercial teams, the UK-based cleantech company creates additional value for producers and end-users of natural biochemicals and biofuels – with little or no environmental impact.

By becoming an RSB member, NPT will build upon the success of recent deals with fellow RSB member LanzaJet and British Airways, to offer commercial value for both customers and partners.

Leveraging the collaborative network of RSB, NPT aims to: replace the need for fossil fuel-derived and synthetically-created materials; maximise by-products from plants that are already farmed and convert unwanted useful and valuable materials; and minimise industrial energy use and the impact of consumption on the natural world.

“We are delighted to join the RSB. We are developing exciting technology that allows production of advanced fuels as well as carbon sequestration through biochar which is a co-product of the process. As we scale up our technology and develop new markets this is a perfect opportunity to join a prestigious global organisation and we look forward to working closely with other members throughout the network as we work towards a net zero future,” says Dr Neil Hindle, Chief Technology Officer of NPT.

RSB is a global membership organisation that has been guiding sector transformation to bio-based and circular models for over a decade. The RSB Standard, the world’s most trusted and peer-reviewed sustainability framework, has been developed by the organisation’s multi-stakeholder membership, and is a uniquely robust and credible foundation for supporting innovative solutions to the climate crisis. RSB uses this foundation to develop projects, new knowledge and best-practices that equip key decision-makers to deliver positive impacts for people and the planet.

As an RSB member, NPT will be invited to contribute to the continuous development of the RSB Standard, and also benefit from global recognition and access to industry initiatives and policy platforms that are shaping future markets, such as the SAF Policy Platform, the Power-to-X Working Group and the soon-to-be-announced Sustainable Biomass Policy Platform. 

“RSB represents industry leaders on a journey towards advancing a sustainable and circular bioeconomy, so we are thrilled to welcome pioneers like Nova Pangaea Technologies to our collaborative network. We’re certain they’ll make the most of all that RSB’s membership offers, and also provide valuable contributions to existing and future member platforms,” says Nicola Noponen, RSB’s Technical Director.
