Increased carbon efficiency in bio-based circular value chains - efficient use of every carbon atom

Demand for materials and products that contribute to the green transition is expected to increase. Biomass, together with recycled raw materials, are important components in the transition to a sustainable circular economy. This call within BioInnovation is aimed at projects that want to accelerate the green transition through increased carbon efficiency in bio-based value chains, value cycles or value networks. The ambition is for the projects to aim for each carbon atom to be used as efficiently and for as long as possible. Funded projects must have the objective of stimulating efficiency improvements in existing carbon flows or developing new carbon flows for increased resource efficiency and circularity. Projects may also aim to develop new processes, products, applications and create value chains or value cycles for side- and residual streams or bio-based recycled raw materials.
