Industrial biotech sector calls for an ambitious revision of EU Bioeconomy Strategy

In Brussels, on the EU Bioeconomy Policy Day, EuropaBio called for an ambitious revision of the European Bioeconomy Strategy. Such a revision would help tackle climate change and meet the needs of a growing population whilst boosting Europe’s resource efficiency, competitiveness and long-term economic growth.

“To achieve this, the revision must put in place a coherent and holistic policy and financial framework to support access to sustainably produced biomass, foster investments and further develop the market for bio-based products”, said Joanna Dupont Inglis, EuropaBio’s Director for Industrial Biotech and Cross-Sector Strategy.

Since the launch of the €۳.۷ billion Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking and the Investment Plan for Europe in 2014, there have been remarkable and inspiring advances in bio-based innovation. “Nevertheless, ” said the EuropeBio membership in a statement, “we are yet to see impactful progress on commercialisation of bio-based products.”

“To overcome this hurdle and fulfil the bioeconomy’s potential for Europe’s competitiveness and growth, a revised EU Bioeconomy Strategy should address:

Biomass: Circular bioeconomy should be an integral part of EU-level frameworks and policies;

Investment: Increase funding and improve coherence of financing mechanisms for the circular bioeconomy;

Investment: Secure the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) 2.0;

Markets: Incentives for bio-based products in strategic sectors;

  • Markets: Promote bio-based products’ visibility to stimulate market demand.

“As the voice of the industrial biotechnology industry in Europe, which is predicted to contribute between €۵۷,۵ billion and €۹۹,۵ billion and well above 1 million jobs to the EU economy by 2030, EuropaBio is a fully committed partner in this discussion through platforms including:
