Competitive Edge: MBP Solutions biofuels, biogas production


Q: What was the reason for founding your organization – what was the open niche you saw that could be addressed with a new product or service? What was the problem, or gap, or opportunity?

MBP Solutions was founded in 1999 in Scandinavia based on the idea of sustainability, legal compliance, transparency and optimal utilization of biological by-products.

Since our start in 2015 in the US, we have learnt that there is also a need for our outsourced management of by-products (OMBP) solution in the US. Our outsourcing solution is unique and once companies learn about how MBP works, they recognize the value, that a dedicated by-products team can bring to their operations.

In MBP, we have made the management of by-products our only business with a 24/7 laser focus on finding the best paying outlets, developing new applications, identifying the most sustainable solutions and ensuring that all uses are legally compliant. We are adding value to biological by-products through our 5 core competencies: Product and Application Expertise, International Sales & Marketing, Legal Compliance, Sustainability and Supply Chain Management.
