Register now! Online workshop on Sustainability of Bio-based Products – 28 April
On behalf of the STAR-ProBio project partners, we would like to invite you to an online workshop entitled “Assessing Sustainability of Bio-based Products: Where do we stand?”.
The event will take place on 28 April from 10:00 to 12:30 CET and will feature three sessions, showing how the project proposes to formulate guidelines for a common framework promoting the development of regulations and standards that support the adoption of business innovation models and market uptake in the bio-based products sector.
STAR ProBio in an H2020 project, supporting the European Commission in the implementation of European policy initiatives, including the Lead Market Initiative in bio-based products, the industrial policy and the European Bioeconomy Strategy.
The overall goal of the project is to formulate guidelines for a common framework promoting the development of regulations and standards that support the adoption of business innovation models and market uptake in the bio-based products sector. STAR-ProBio does so by developing a blueprint for sustainability schemes and tools applicable to a large spectrum of bioproducts, and by making recommendations for a more efficient and harmonised policy regulation framework for the market-pull of such products. New and revised assessment methodologies, criteria and indicators are developed by integrating:
Environmental assessments focus on end-of-life analysis;
Economic, social assessments based on stakeholder analysis, surveys and field experiments;
Indirect land use change issues (ILUC) addressed from an environmental, economic and social perspective.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 727740.
