Horizon 2020 – Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking – 2020
Funds for: implementing important EU policies and initiatives such as the European strategic long-term vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy ‘A Clean Planet for all’, the transition from a fossil to a sustainable bio-based economy, the need for circularity and industrial transformation, and the EU Bioeconomy Strategy

Priorities and funded actions:

– BBI-2020-SO1-D2 – Use biogenic gaseous carbon to increase feedstock availability for the industry    
– BBI-2020-SO1-F1 – Valorise the organic fraction of municipal solid waste through an integrated biorefinery at commercial level    
–  BBI-2020-SO1-F2 – Turn lignin into materials and chemicals for high-end applications   
– BBI-2020-SO1-F3 – Produce food ingredients with high nutritional value from aquatic sources    
– BBI-2020-SO2-D3 – Upscale the production of bio-based platform molecules for larger market applications    
– BBI-2020-SO2-R1 – Use enabling technologies to improve feedstock availability and sustainability for the bio-based industry    
– BBI-2020-SO2-R2 – Develop integral fractionation of lignocellulose to produce components for high-value applications    
– BBI-2020-SO2-R3 – Develop bio-based solutions to recycle composites    
– BBI-2020-SO2-R4 – Extract bioactive compounds from new, under-exploited and/or recalcitrant residual bio-based streams for high-value applications    
– BBI-2020-SO3-D4 – Demonstrate superior bio-based packaging solutions with minimal environmental damage    
– BBI-2020-SO3-R5 – Improve the sustainability of coatings    
– BBI-2020-SO4-S1 – Help start-ups and spin-offs to gain access to finance    
– BBI-2020-SO4-S2 – Provide insight on emerging technologies for bio-based value chains   
– BBI-2020-SO4-S3 – Create and interlink bio-based education centres to meet industry’s needs of skills and competences    
– BBI-2020-SO4-S4 – Expand circular economy to include the underexploited circular bioeconomy
