From biomass production to commercialisation, multiple barriers need to be overcome for the market uptake of bio-based products in Europe. Within the BIOrescue project, partners developed an innovative biorefinery concept to transform lignocellulosic biomass feedstock, including used mushroom compost, into novel bio-based products.
Looking towards the project's end, the BIOrescue consortium is pleased to invite all interested stakeholders, including partners from other biorefinery projects, to join them in a dedicated workshop to be held in the morning of 28 February in Mainz, Germany, to discuss the challenges and opportunities arising from the exploitation of sustainable biomass sources in Europe for the commercialisation of new bio-based products.
To explore this topic, EU-funded projects and industry stakeholders will present the support measures implemented in terms of infrastructure development, standardisation and market uptake for bio-based products. In that sense, all participating partners will also be invited to pitch their concept and ideas for the development of the European bio-based industry and to present or discover inspirational examples of biorefinery projects at the occasion of the poster session.
Outcomes from the discussion will feed the BIOrescue project's policy recommendations to support the development of a bio-based economy in the agro-food industry. These will be presented to a panel of policy makers at the project final event on 4 April 2019 in Brussels.
