    How we support our clients in their decarbonization projects

    Founded in 1993, Alcimed is a consulting firm specialized in innovation and new markets development in life sciences. Spread over our 8 offices in the world (in France, Europe, Singapore and the USA), our team of 220 high-level explorers supports everyday decision-makers and business departments (marketing, research, innovation, strategy, CSR, etc.) in their innovation and new market development projects.

    The projects we carry out in the field of decarbonization cover topics as diverse as the development of energy performance strategies and decarbonization roadmaps, competitor analysis, state of the art and landscapes of technological solutions, the development of valorization strategies, the implementation of new business models, sector studies, and many others!

    And our activities are not limited to decarbonization. The diversity of our clients (manufacturers, ETIs, innovative start-ups, institutions, etc.), the subjects we deal with, and the geographical areas we explore, enable us to master a wide range of missions and develop recognized expertise in our specialized sectors.

    Our expertise

    Examples of decarbonization projects carried out for our clients

    • Developing the regional decarbonization plan for an economic development agency

      We accompanied a French regional economic development agency in a strategic study on the development of its photovoltaic sector, in order to contribute to achieving energy neutrality by 2050.

      Our teams analyzed development opportunities regarding the regional value chain and local and external stakes, and then defined a roadmap for the development of photovoltaic technology in priority innovation areas and application markets.

    • Supporting a company in the defense sector in its strategic reflections on decarbonization

      Our client wanted an overview of future low-carbon and decarbonized renewable energies that would meet military operational requirements, in order to better orient its future studies.

      To do this, we conducted a 3-step investigation: first, we defined the army’s playgrounds and segmented the related uses, then our team identified and segmented the relevant low-carbon and decarbonized energy types, before characterizing and selecting the most relevant technologies for our client.

      Finally, 40 energy bricks were analyzed to create an overview report of the army’s future renewable energies, thanks to which our client was able to build its strategy.

    • Building an industrial electrification offer for an industrial client

      For a company in the energy sector, we conducted a market study to establish the positioning of its industrial electrification offer.

      For this project, our team studied the different decarbonization strategies, the types of technology available and the specificities that exist in our client’s target industries (O&G, metal, F&B, glass and cement). We then exchanged with decision-makers in these market segments, to gather their receptivity to our client’s decarbonization offer, with regard to their own commitments and industrial constraints.

      As a result, our client was able to develop a better understanding of its sector’s current electricity needs and was also able to refine its offering to make it the most relevant in its market in view of climate change.

    • Identifying solutions for mitigating greenhouse gas emissions related to enteric fermentation of cattle for an industrial player

      To help our client achieve its carbon neutrality goals, we conducted a review of innovations to reduce enteric fermentation in dairy cows. We explored 3 main types of sources: scientific publications, disruptive commercial solutions, and interviews with technical institutes and additive suppliers.

      During a workshop with our client, we elaborated its 15-year roadmap, integrating the set of process solutions to be implemented as well as the action steps to be carried out for each solution (partners, red flags to work on, solution ambassadors, …).

      In addition to a roadmap, key implementation partners have been identified to anticipate the first steps of operational implementation.

    • Defining a CCUS strategy for an environmental company

      As part of their carbon neutrality goal, one of our clients, an environmental company, wanted to explore the potential of a CCUS strategy in detail. Alcimed supported them in this project by identifying all available or in-production CO2 capture devices worldwide and mapping out potential valorization methods.

      Among the 70 identified processes and 43 valorization pathways, our team selected the most promising capture/valorization combinations for our client. Methods such as mineralization and alternatives to fossil resources for CO2 utilization were explored.

    • Evaluation of opportunities for local recovery of liquid CO2 produced by an environmental company

      Un acteur de l’environnement souhaitant mieux valoriser le CO2 issu de ses futures unités de méthanisation se demandait comment valoriser localement ce CO2 vert, quels étaient les besoins et attentes des potentiels utilisateurs et quels étaient les enjeux logistiques liés à leur approvisionnement.

      Nous avons donc accompagné notre client dans l’élaboration d’une stratégie CCUS en identifiant les potentiels utilisateurs locaux de ce futur CO2 vert, en analysant leurs pratiques actuelles (approvisionnement, logistique, prix…), leurs besoins et leurs attentes, et en étudiant leur réceptivité vis-à-vis de l’offre proposée.

      En plus de cette analyse permettant d’identifier de nombreuses manières de valoriser le CO2, Alcimed a obtenu un premier engagement signé de 8 acteurs locaux intéressés par ce CO2 liquide biosourcé et par la proposition de valeur de notre client.

    • Techno-economic analysis of chemical CO2 valorization technologies

      Alcimed supported a project developer in gaining a comprehensive understanding of chemical CO2 valorization pathways to better position their own carbon capture, storage, and utilization systems.

      Our teams conducted an overview of these pathways, comparing them based on various criteria such as technological maturity, industrialization, development potential, and economic viability of the resulting products.

      Additionally, our teams conducted a targeted analysis of the electrochemical pathway, conducting a state-of-the-art review to highlight the advantages of our client’s devices compared to competition in the production of various valuable products through electrolysis, such as propanol, ethylene, and carbon monoxide.

    • Strategic study of CO2 valorization pathways for a public entity

      Alcimed supported the French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME) in the development of a reference document on different CO2 valorization pathways to assess the strategic interest of France in promoting one of them.

      After creating a segmentation of the different pathways based on the nature of CO2 transformation (no transformation, or with chemical transformation or biological transformation), our team conducted a state-of-the-art analysis of various devices related to each valorization pathway. We also identified the main challenges and barriers within each sector.
