Europe’s chemical industry is being outpaced by Asia. High regulatory, energy and labour costs together with an ageing population are slowing down European growth. RoadToBio’s focus on globally competitive bio-based chemicals will help shape the future of Europe’s chemicals industry and help to secure jobs in Europe’s rural and less developed regions.

Specifically, RoadToBio will deliver a roadmap and action plan illustrating the ‘sweet spots’ for Europe’s chemicals industry towards the Bioeconomy over the coming decade, up to 2030.

RoadToBio - Way to a bio-based chemical industry

RoadToBio will create a platform to bring together the chemicals industry, civil society and governing bodies to establish a dialogue on the activities needed to deliver the full potential of the action plan.

We are a consortium of organisations with a wide range of expertise, from technical knowledge of renewable resources to the development of educational resources. Our team also includes strategic consultancies and research communication experts.

Registration open for webinar “Bio-based sweet spots for the chemical industry – A conclusion and discussion after the second stakeholder workshop”

Wednesday , 11 July 2018 13.00 CEST

 

The RoadToBio consortium is pleased to invite you to the second webinar to introduce and discuss the bio-based opportunities identified within the project for the chemical industry to increase its bio-based portfolio.


The RoadToBio project has identified nine exemplary "sweet spots". Based on TRL, market volume and price these bio-based chemicals were selected as promising candidates with the potential to replace fossil-based counterparts. Currently, the descriptions of business cases are under development to describe the potential advantages for industry, consumers and the society of these "sweet spots". Recently, a stakeholder workshop took place in Brussels in June with the aim to discuss hurdles and enablers for market entrance of bio-based products in general and also with a strong focus on the sweet spots.

 

To introduce a broader audience to the identified "sweet spots" and the results of the workshop we would like to invite you to participate in the upcoming RoadToBio Webinar “Bio-based sweet spots for the chemical industry – A conclusion and discussion after the second stakeholder workshop” on 11 July 2018 at 13.00 CEST. You should take this opportunity to learn and discuss the identified bio-based products with a community of relevant stakeholders. This webinar is targeted to producers, consumers, NGOs, academcis or any other interested party in the field of bio-based chemicals and biomaterials.

The Webinar is free of charge. Register here
