Specific Challenge:The implementation of bioeconomy solutions and related value chains on large scale depends heavily on the market acceptance of bio-based products. The fact that the price of bio-based products generally tends to be higher than the relevant fossil-based counterparts is still hindering the widespread take-up of these products. In addition to developing more features and better per ...

Specific Challenge:Plastics are an essential part of modern society, with applications in almost every product range.
