Bio-Based Industries

 

Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking est un partenariat public-privé entre la Commission Européenne et le Consortium des Bioindustries (BIC). Son objectif principal est de réduire la dépendance européenne en combustible fossiles ainsi que des ses dérivés afin d’avancer vers une économie qui permettra d’enrayer les effets du changement climatique et de transformer l’économie européenne en une économie plus respectueuse de l’environnement.

La BBI JU finance des actions de recherche et d’innovation, telles que des actions de coordination et de soutien, en accord avec les règles de participation d’Horizon 2020.

Les appels à projet de la BBI JU sont ouverts aux organismes privés à buts lucratif et non lucratif, ainsi que de grandes entreprises, des PME, des organismes de recherche et de technologie, des universités, des associations ou n’importe quelle entité légale intéressée. 

16 projets dédiés au développement industriel seront financés : Sources de biomasse, Processus de transformation, Produits finaux et l’Introduction au marché.

La typologie des projets couvre différents degrés de développement, y compris des projets de recherche plus avancés, des projets de démonstration de nouvelles technologies aux grands projets visant à l’installation de bioraffineries en Europe.

BBI-2020-SO1-F3: Produce food ingredients with high nutritional value from aquatic sources

A number of projects have demonstrated the successful conversion of aquatic biomass, mainly algae, into high-value ingredients for food applications. Actors in the aquatic and marine worlds are confident that by combining forces they can start converting the many aquatic and marine species and fisheries/aquaculture-industries side streams into food applications at commercial level. Europe can take the lead in this direction by enabling such a first-of-its-kind operation.

The specific challenge is to sustainably scale up the conversion of new and sustainable aquatic and marine sources for human food and contribute to food and nutrition security.

 

BBI-2020-SO2-D3: Upscale the production of bio-based platform molecules for larger market applications

The sustainable production of bio-based platform molecules with a broad range of potential applications could increase the competitiveness of bio-based materials and products compared with their fossil-based counterparts.

Market interest in bio-based platform molecules is increasing, and market actors are requesting larger quantities of these molecules for further formulation and testing in specific applications, including food, feed and consumer personal care. To foster the market penetration of these molecules — and make them competitive against fossil-based counterparts — industry must increase the production of targeted bio-based platform molecules. This must be done at a competitive cost and quality compared with the state of the art.

The specific challenge is to upscale the production of bio-based platform molecules in sufficient quantities and at sufficient quality to promote their larger application in new and existing markets.

 

BBI-2020-SO3-D4: Demonstrate superior bio-based packaging solutions with minimal environmental damage

Packaging is key to sustaining the quality and durability of consumer and industrial products through their lifespan. Today, most packaging materials are fossil-based and may cause environmental problems at the end of their life cycle if not properly managed.

The specific challenge is to upscale the production of sustainable and high-performing bio-based packaging solutions that do not create environmental damage during and after use.

 

BBI-2020-SO2-R4: Extract bioactive compounds from new, under-exploited and/or recalcitrant residual bio-based streams for high-value applications

There is a strong continuing interest in obtaining high-value, sustainable, bio-based ingredients from new and alternative sources. These sources include under-exploited, ‘recalcitrant’ (i.e. requiring innovative processes/technologies to handle) side streams containing bioactive compounds with high market potential.

The specific challenge is to develop appropriate processing schemes to extract bioactives from new, under-exploited and/or recalcitrant residual streams so they can be used in high-value-added applications.

 

BBI-2020-SO4-S2: Provide insight on emerging technologies for bio-based value chains

Not all actors in the bio-based sector may be aware of or familiar with the existing and emerging technologies that could be used in bio-based value chains. Moreover, technologies are continuously evolving, and new technologies emerge so frequently that industry can hardly keep up. Without a clear overview of relevant technologies for specific applications, selecting the right one(s) for a particular value chain becomes difficult.

Mapping these technologies in a user-friendly database could resolve this situation and provide toolboxes for various cases. Such a database should categorise each technology by its characteristics: application fields, feedstock (e.g. source, size, and composition), working principle (e.g. chemical, biotechnological, mechanical), maturity (TRL), energy consumption, maximum capacity (tonne/hr), application conditions (e.g. temperature, pH), combined use with other technologies, relevant engineering studies, etc.

The specific challenge is to provide a complete overview of relevant technologies for the bio-based industry, both existing and emerging.

 

BBI-2020-SO4-S4: Expand circular economy to include the underexploited circular bioeconomy

With the bioeconomy becoming a reality, new interests have come into play, such as those focused on making use of waste streams or residual streams that so far have not been used, or that have only been used for burning as fuel.

This emergence of new interests can lead to potential conflicts of interests or at least to divergences of views as regards strategies to adopt. Some stakeholders focus on waste disposal (via landfill, incineration, etc.). Others focus on waste avoidance (e.g. by using renewable resources, utilising side streams). And others focus on using the materials found in waste. For this last category, regulations preventing the use of waste as a feedstock for other products, or preventing the moving of waste across borders, can be a hurdle. Changes in the waste hierarchy lead to conflicts between different stakeholders. The same conflict can arise when diverting biogenic waste streams from use in power-and-heat generation and composting to bio-based operations for material use.

The specific challenge is to reconcile legislation, waste management, circularity and the bioeconomy.
