RoadToBio – Roadmap for the Chemical Industry in Europe towards a Bioeconomy. Engagement Guide Fact sheet 3 – Key Messages

The roadmap written for the chemical industry has the aspiration to show a way on how to increase the share of bio-based or renewable feedstock to 25% of total volume of organic chemicals raw materials/feedstock used by the chemical industry in 2030. This document is intended to provide an evidence-based foundation for the EU chemical industry upon which future policy can be implemented and actions delivered.

The Key Messages presented in this factsheet are intended as an instrument for the chemical industry to address target audiences in their communication about bio-based chemicals, materials and products.

RoadToBio – Roadmap for the Chemical Industry in Europe towards a Bioeconomy. Engagement Guide Fact sheet 2 – Communication Guide

RoadToBio investigated public perception of bio-based products to identify societal barriers to market uptake.

A combination of literature review  and expert interviews yielded insights into consumer perceptions based on which recommendations on how these barriers could be tackled were developed. Many of these are  communication-related recommendations.

The recommendations presented in this Communication Guide factsheet can help to shape your communications and customise your key messages.

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.

The roadmap written for the chemical industry has the aspiration to show a way on how to increase the share of bio-based or renewable feedstock to 25% of total volume of organic chemicals raw materials/feedstock used by the chemical industry in 2030. This document is intended to provide an evidence-based foundation for the EU chemical industry upon which future policy can be implemented and actions delivered.

It describes the actions needed from all stakeholders (government and policy makers, funding bodies, NGOs, the chemical industry, academia, R&D centres, and commercial entities) to incentivise and facilitate the use of bio-based feedstocks and intermediates in the chemicals industry between now and 2030.

The roadmap aims to deliver a set of key messages and actions for each of the nine product groups in scope to achieve the overarching objectives, set out over time, showing interdependencies between them. Along with this, the roadmap will also focus on a set of general barriers that apply to the entire European chemicals industry, and actions that could be taken to address them.
