News from RoadToBio: Nine new BioBased Opportunities and a New Survey


The RoadToBio project is developing different business cases to show the possibilities for greater use of biobased feedstock and materials in the chemical industry, the barriers which hinder market uptake for biobased products and how to overcome them.

As part of this the project conducted a  webinar in mid-July that is now available for all. 

Nine new biobased opportunities identified for the Chemical Industry

The BBI-JU funded Horizon 2020 project RoadToBio has as its main main goal the development of a Roadmap to show the path to increase the bio-based share up to 25%  in the chemical industry by 2030.

The project has identified nine business cases that exemplify the possibilities for the chemical industry to produce more biobased products. For further information please follow the link and listen to a webinar held by the consortium on July 11 to present these nine business cases.

Survey on key barriers and hurdles on biobased products – what is your opinion?
Another feature of the RoadToBioproject is the involvement of stakeholders from the chemical industry, academia, NGOs as well as governmental bodies from the very start of the project. Currently the project is on the barriers which hinder market uptake for biobased products.

For this the project has developed a survey to give the different stakeholders the opportunity to share their opinions and to communicate them with greater impact. The project is seeking your input and opinion on significant barriers to biobased products that hinder market uptake.

Do you want to be part on the journey to a bioeconomy-based future? If so, complete the survey by the 31 August and return it back to the RoadToBio consortium. More information on the survey is available here.
