Event description

Description

From biomass production to commercialisation, multiple barriers need to be overcome for the market uptake of bio-based products in Europe. Within the BIOrescue project, funded by the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme, partners have developed an innovative biorefinery concept to transform lignocellulosic biomass feedstock, including used mushroom compost, into novel bio-based products such as biodegradable nanocarriers for biopesticide and fertiliser encapsulation, developed by the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research.

Looking towards the project’s end, the BIOrescue consortium is pleased to invite all interested stakeholders, including partners from other biorefinery projects, to discuss the challenges and opportunities arising fromthe exploitation sustainable biomass sources in Europe for the commercialisation of new bio-based products.

To explore this topic, EU-funded projects and industry stakeholders will present the support measures implemented in terms of infrastructure development, standardisation and market uptake for bio-based products. In that sense, all participating partners will also be invited to pitch their concept and ideas for the development of the European bio-based industry.

Outcomes from the discussion will feed the BIOrescue project's policy recommendations to support the development of a bio-based economy in the agro-food industry. These will be presented to a panel of policy makers at the project final event on 4 April 2019 in Brussels.

Are you interested in pitching your biorefinery concept to feed the discussions? Do not hesitate to let us know in the registration form, and seize this opportunity to network with your future partners and voice your opinion on the future of the European bio-based industry sector.
