In 2013, only a few bio-based building blocks had reached economically viable production compared to their oil-based counterparts – but the latest developments are more encouraging. The EU demand for CBBs which can currently be produced through fermentation is estimated at a little less than 700 MEUR in 2013, representing approximately 35% of global production and an average growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 10 %/annum from 2008 to 2013.
However, many hurdles to the development of biobased chemicals in Europe persist. Despite potentially superior product properties, issues related to raw material availability, quality and cost, as well as the cost competitiveness of CBBs produced in the EU continue to hamper the full deployment of biobased chemicals in Europe. Difficult downstream processing steps contribute to further increase production costs.
The complete BIO-TIC preliminary results on market, R&D and policy and regulatory aspects of biobased chemical building blocks production in the EU will be presented during the free webinar. Pathways for overcoming barriers to the full deployment of biobased chemicals in the EU will be suggested. The BIO-TIC consortium welcomes any comments and suggestions for improvement of these findings.
We are keen to get your feedback:
- DURING the webinar – use the dialog box to pose questions and participate in the discussion!
- AFTER the webinar – drop us an email with your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org!
- Roald Suurs (TNO) will introduce the BIO-TIC project structure and objectives.
- The main part will revolve around how to ensure a blooming future for biobased chemical building blocks in Europe. BIO-TIC findings and solutions will be presented by Carol Roa Engel (TNO).
- Finally, Dirk Verdoes (TNO) will provide insights from two other European projects working on biobased chemical building blocks: BioQED and BioConsept.
