Short description:

Ιn this report, a review of the application areas and market penetration of the following biobased market segments is attempted, along with an assessment of possible barriers to uptake
and growth and future trends that characterize each specific sector:

  • Bio-based chemicals and building blocks;
  • Bioenergy and biofuels;
  •  Bioplastics/ biomaterials;
  • Bio-based food and feed ingredients;
  • Biosurfactants;
  • Biolubricants.

This analysis was made following a review of relevant literature and based on several qualitative interviews with key stakeholders in the bio-based production domain. Additionally, information about the supply chains of bio-based products (relating to biomass feedstock used, processes and biorefineries) and about existing legislation and policy framework is presented.
