Bio-based products: The key to climate neutrality? 7 September 2022, 08:30 - 09:30 CET


Shortages in raw materials and the need to reduce the usage of fossil fuels draw our attention to bio-based materials to replace non-renewable fossil raw materials in the European value chains.

Potentially, most products based on fossil fuels that are produced today could be made from biological material. This shift is important to reach the EU’s climate targets described in the European Green Deal, as the production of renewable, bio-based products and materials from biomass or waste can contribute greatly to achieving climate neutrality. Furthermore, it can help to improve Europe’s resilience and support the economic growth.

In this context, the European Cluster Collaboration Platform, on behalf of the European Commission, DG GROW, organises the EU Clusters Talk on 7 September 2022, 08:30 – 09:30 CEST, to discuss bio-based materials as replacements of fossil fuelled raw materials, the potential for the green transition, existing solutions, and the roll-out for the industry.


The expert panel will include insights from Bérénice Kimpe, EU Project Manager, Competitiveness Cluster XYLOFUTUR, with further speakers to be announced.
This EU Clusters Talk will also see the return of the From Our Own Correspondent segment, which this time will be brought to us by Circular Bioeconomy Cluster South-West, Ireland.
