RoadToBio – Roadmap for the Chemical Industry in Europe towards a Bioeconomy – Action Plan

The Action Plan is the first entry point to the RoadToBio roadmap written for the chemical industry. It provides an overview of the key points of the roadmap and shows all identified barriers and recommended actions identified in the project for nine product groups  in which bio-based value chains already make up for a significant share, but can still be strengthened: adhesives, agrochemicals, cosmetics, lubricants, man-made fibres, paints and coatings,  plastics and/or polymers, solvents, and surfactants.

For these product groups the action plan provides:

  • description of current state and opportunities for bio-based products
  • overview scheme identifying drivers and barriers
  • chevron diagram showing the recommended actions for each barrier

For some wider issues that concern the chemical industry in the bioeconomy. referred to as general barriers, an overview is given and some recommended actions to overcome them are presented.
