By developing new bio-based products and increasing resource efficiency, the project consortia will reinforce the bio-based industries sector. Additionally, they will support the European economy in the upcoming years, as they will increase business opportunities and create jobs in both rural and urban areas. The new BBI JU projects will also contribute to reducing greenhouse emissions, thus showing a significant environmental impact.

Most of the Call’s funding will support projects improving the bio-based production line, lowering its costs and thus bringing affordable green products to the customer. The projects will also develop innovative bio-based products and recycling solutions for plastics.
