New call for proposals on bio-based industries Public-Private Partnership

Date: 08/05/2017

A call on bio-based industries Public-Private Partnership was published on 11 April 2017. Applicants can submit their proposals until 7 September 2017.

It covers the following topics:

  • Valorisation of liquid and solid side streams from bio-based operations into high added-value products to create new feedstock for bio-based products
  • Integrated multi-valorisation of algae into advanced materials and high added-value additives
  • Breakthrough primary bio-based chemicals without significant fossil-based counterparts but with high marketability
  • Innovative bio-based fertilising products to increase the sustainability of fertilising practices in agriculture
  • Advanced bio-based fibres and materials for large-volume applications
  • Integrated ‘zero waste’ biorefinery utilising all fractions of the feedstock for production of chemicals and materials
  • Large-scale production of proteins for food and feed applications from alternative, sustainable sources
  • Valorisation of gaseous side streams from bio-based operations into chemical building blocks
  • Innovative technologies for the pre-treatment and separation of lignocellulosic feedstock and complex composition streams into valuable fractions while maintaining key characteristics
  • Exploiting extremophiles and extremozymes to broaden the processing conditions to convert biomass into high-value building blocks
  • Proteins and other bioactive ingredients from side streams and residues
  • Novel bio-based chemical precursors to improve the performance of mass consumption products
  • Competitive biodegradable, compostable and/or recyclable bio-based plastics for a sustainable end-of-life phase
  • Novel secondary bio-based chemicals without significant fossil-based counterparts but with high application potential
  • Establish cooperation and partnership with brand owners and consumer representatives to improve the market access of sustainable bio-based products
  • Identify opportunities for ICT to increase the efficiency of biomass supply chains for the bio-based industry
