Bioeconomy WG Meeting - New bio-based products

Sustainable Solutions for bio-based plastics on land and sea As argued by the DG GROW, bio-based products can make the economy more sustainable and lower its dependence on fossil fuels. For this reason, the EU has declared the bio-based products sector to be a priority area with high potential for future growth, reindustrialisation, and addressing societal challenges. An assessment done by the European Commission has indicated that bio-based products and biofuels represent approximately EUR 57 billion in annual revenue and involve 300,000 jobs. This meeting will focus on EU strategies and action plans related to new bio-based products and plastics, showcasing best practices from different regions supporting these strategies and plans. More specifically, the meeting will also look at the Horizon 2020 call "CE-BG-06-2019 Sustainable Solutions for bio-based plastics on land and sea". Please find the agenda above.  Please note that we have reached full capacity for this meeting.
