Final report EU Biorefinery Outlook to 2030 available

In 2020 the European Commission DG RTD awarded a E4tech (Lead), Wageningen Research, BTG, FNR and iCons the “EU Biorefinery Outlook to 2030” study.

The executive summary and study report is now available here. The report presents scenarios on how demand and supply for bio-based chemicals and materials could grow to 2030, and provides roadmaps with actions required to increase the deployment of chemical and material driven biorefineries in the EU.

The study also presents the key elements of the analysis which have supported the preparation of the scenarios and roadmaps. This includes a biorefinery classification system, a database of operational or announced biorefineries (developed in collaboration with the Joint Research Centre) for the EU and 10 non-EU countries, a detailed opportunities and barriers analysis, and a market outlook to 2030 with a focus on eleven biorefinery pathways.
