Shortages in raw materials and the need to reduce the usage of fossil fuels draw our attention to bio-based materials to replace non-renewable fossil raw materials in the European value chains. Potentially, most products based on fossil fuels that are produced today could be made from biological material. This shift is important to reach the EU’s climate targets described in the European Green Deal, as the production of renewable, bio-based products and materials from biomass or waste can contribute greatly to achieving climate neutrality. Furthermore, it can help to improve Europe’s resilience and support the economic growth.
In this context, the European Cluster Collaboration Platform, on behalf of the European Commission, DG GROW, organises the EU Clusters Talk on 7 September 2022, 8:30 – 9:30 CEST, to discuss bio-based materials as replacements of fossil fuelled raw materials, the potential for the green transition, existing solutions, and the roll-out for the industry.
Prior registration to this event is compulsory before 7 September, 7:30 CEST.
This EU Clusters Talk is open to participants from the European Union and SMP/COSME countries. Approval for attending the session will be given individually. Please use your corporate email address to register (i.e. no gmail addresses or similar).
