Collaboration is key to unlocking the potential of bio-based building materials

Our exciting recent collaboration brings Breathaboard one step closer to global manufacture and distribution as the business teams up with the Sustainable Technologies Business Acceleration Hub (STBAH) – a programme partnered with the University of Bath and funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

The STBAH programme provides business acceleration and research collaboration with the University of Bath for innovative companies involved in low carbon products and services. We are excited about the potential outcomes from this collaboration both from technical and commercial perspectives. Past collaboration with the University of Bath was pivotal to Adaptavate launching our first product innovation – Breathaplasta – our internal wall plaster that is highly breathable, reduces condensation and mould growth and absorbs indoor air pollutants.

The collaboration with the STBAH programme has already enabled access to bespoke business consultancy support that’s helped to bring the company’s innovative bio-based Breathaboard one step closer to market. The consultancy is now ongoing as we develop a platform for licensing our game changing technology globally.

The programme has also helped to facilitate collaborative research with the University of Bath into the feasibility of a self-healing wall plaster using specialised bacteria. This exciting novel application of this emerging bio-technology has proven promising and may have applications in a range of built environment products we are looking to develop in the future.

Discussing the STBAH business support and research collaboration, Jeff Ive, Adaptavate Technical Director said:

The STBAH programme has been extremely helpful to Adaptavate, both from technical and commercial perspectives. The free business support has already been instrumental to Adaptavate as the company grows through a pivotal stage of securing initial license partners for our core technology and raising the necessary capital. For us, the links with the University of Bath have also been invaluable and we’re delighted to continue to collaborate with them on this research project and on other project developments we have in the pipeline”.
