Wales has new biorefinery.
The BEACON biorefining centre, the first of its kind in Wales, will pioneer new ways of converting crops into chemicals, fuels and cosmetics.
Crops such as rye grass, oats and miscanthus will be trialled at the IBERS facility.
BEACON is led by Aberystwyth University in collaboration with partners at Bangor and Swansea Universities. It is backed with pounds 10.6m RDP funding.
One of the businesses involved is Ceredigion-based Tropical Forest Products, which is developing a honey product for use in the cosmetics industry.
