Bio-based economy: market pull measures for bio-based products

Preliminary list – basis for discussion

Aside from incentives for feedstock or production, it is possible to stimulate market pull in order to support bio-based products and materials. Bans and mandates for certain product groups constitute one way to create such a pull. This list, created by nova-Institute, is a compilation of ideas for which bio-based product groups it would make sense to implement bans and mandates. All of the proposed measures are based on environmental or health reasons.
