Successful second stakeholder workshop

On June 19, the RoadToBio consortium invited stakeholders from the chemical industry, academics, NGOs as well as governmental bodies to a workshop to discuss the key barriers on bio-based products and the business cases presented in the roadmap.

 Workshop RoadToBio

Discussions were lively, and a lot of input could be gathered from the 20 participants from different stakeholder groups.


From “sweet spots” to business cases


In the course of the project, a number of “sweet spots” were identified - bio-based chemicals with a high potential to replace fossil-based chemicals by 2030 and to increase the bio-based product share in the chemical industry. Of these sweet spots, 9 were selected to illustrate the advantages of bio-based production, the hurdles that have to be tackled and how this could be done.

The nine business cases are:

  • 1,4 Butanediol
  • Dodecanedioic acid (DDDA)
  • Ethylene
  • Furfural
  • Glycerol
  • Lactic acid
  • Methanol
  • PEF
  • PHA
