Biobased industry for circular bioeconomy: from regions to Europe
- Wednesday, November 8, 2023
- 14:00 - 17:00
- Tulipano Room B6 pav.
- organized by Ecomondo Scientific Technical Committee & Italian Circular Bioeconomy Cluster SPRING
The biobased industry contributes to the implementation of the circular bioeconomy by building value chains that respect the environment and local communities. This regional perspective of the bioeconomy must be consistent with the European and international regulatory, economic and financial contexts. The EU's commitment to support the biobased industry is evident from its participation in the Circular Bio-based Europe Joint Undertaking. The conference intends to highlight the different "circularities" implemented by the biobased industry at a regional level, also discussing the regulatory and policy uncertainties that still exist in the relationship with the European and international dimensions of the bioeconomy. The results will feed into a document to be shared among the bioindustry players and with the institutions responsible for coordinating the measures necessary to remove the obstacles to the development of the circular bioeconomy at all its levels.
