nova-Institute and SQ Consult are conducting a study on environmental sustainability requirements of bio-based value chains and supply chains for the bio-based industry in future EU funded R&I demonstration and flagship projects.
The study has been assigned by the Circular Bio-Based Economy Joint Undertaking (CBE JU, formerly BBI JU), a partnership between the European Union and the Bio-based Industries Consortium. The study will formulate an assessment framework that provides early guidance to ensure funded projects meet certain environmental sustainability criteria and avoid awarding projects that cannot. The study specifically covers three parts:
- Environmental sustainability requirements for EU sourced biological feedstock
- A framework to assess the environmental performances of bio-based value chains, including their supply chains
- Environmental sustainability benchmarks for bio-based systems
The survey is addressed to the bio-based industry and projects community, and aims at validating the findings of the study. The survey also aims at collecting further recommendations prior to the submission of the final report. By answering the poll, you can participate in shaping sustainability requirements for future EU funding.
