The roadmap written for the chemical industry has the aspiration to show a way on how to increase the share of bio-based or renewable feedstock to 25% of total volume of organic chemicals raw materials/feedstock used by the chemical industry in 2030.
The roadmap consists of three elements:
- Action plan: summarises barriers and actions into overview schemes
- Engagement guide: provides communication tools to promote bio-based
chemicals and easy-to-read information on the roadmap and consists of three parts:
- Readers guide to roadmap
- Communication guide
- Key messages for communication on bio-based products
- Strategy document: provides in-depth background information integrating all RoadToBio research activities
We are going to successively publish all roadmap documents here:
Published Roadmap documents
The roadmap written for the chemical industry has the aspiration to show a way on how to increase the share of bio-based or renewable feedstock to 25% of total volume of organic chemicals raw materials/feedstock used by the chemical industry in 2030. This Roadmap Strategy Document is intended to provide an evidence-based foundation for the EU chemical industry upon which future policy can be implemented and actions delivered.
The Action Plan is the first entry point to the roadmap. It provides an overview of the key points of the roadmap and shows all identified barriers and recommended actions identified in the project for nine product groups. This way, it helps you get a quick overview of opportunities and barriers for the use of bio-based resources in the chemical industry.
(Engagement guide, part 1)
The Readers´ Guide factsheet describes the purpose of each element of the roadmap and how they can be used by the chemical industry, policy makers and other interested parties to promote bio-based resource use.
(Engagement guide, part 2)
The recommendations presented in this Communication Guide can help you to shape your communications and customise your key messages
(Engagement guide, part 3)
The Key Messages presented in this factsheet are intended as an instrument for the chemical industry to address target audiences in their communication about bio-based chemicals, materials and products.
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 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.
