From bio- waste to bio-based products: the potential for regional innovation development

11 October 2016
Location: 
European Commission, Centre Borschette, Room 0C

"From bio- waste to bio-based products: the potential for regional innovation development" is the title of the workshop that will outline the optimal use of bio-waste for the production of a wide array of bio-based products. This value chain represents a high potential for regional innovation development in order to attract new productive investments, boost a zero-waste circular economy at local level, reduce resources depletion as well as create jobs opportunities at local level. 

This workshop will present the European Commission's research and innovation initiative on this value chain (e.g. Bio-Based Industries JU) and its policy framework (e.g. Circular Economy Package.).

It will also outline the main regulation barriers, technical and financial hurdles for the development of this value chain. Finally, some case studies will be presented of bio-refineries turning bio-waste into a profitable renewable raw material for added value bio-based products, thus fostering their regional growth.

This conference is part of the the European Week of Regions and Cities (EWRC) and will be held in the European Commission, Centre Borschette building, Room 0C, on 11 October 2016, from 11.15 to 13.00.
