We bring together scientific excellence from Britain and India to work closely with industrial partners in both countries.


The science will enable sugar industry wastes to be used to create new sustainable products:


  • Xylitol, a sweetener that can help tackle tooth decay, obesity and diabetes
  • Industrial chemicals with many uses: butyric acid, acetic acid and propionic acid
  • Activated filters to help clean up polluted waters
  • Microcrystalline cellulose for use in food and pharmaceuticals

The BioReview project started in September 2018 and will last three years. We will then move forward into industrial deployment of the science and technology; realising direct economic benefits to the Indian sugar industry and wider societal benefits for the community.
