Title: Chemical and material biorefineries outside the EU

Description

Bio-based chemicals and materials are innovative, high value-added products contributing to the transition to a more sustainable global manufacturing sector. The BTG publishes a dataset on chemical and material biorefineries outside EU and in selected non-EU countries to understand the current status of this building block of the bioeconomy. The dataset focuses on biorefineries that produce bio-based chemicals and materials as main products, on a biomass basis. Traditional bio-based products such as pulp and paper and wood as well as the use of biomass for the production of energy are not included. The dataset builds on the JRC bio-based industries and biorefineries database and extends it in two ways: i) by focusing on the main components of bio-based value chains (feedstock, conversion process platforms, and products); ii) by introducing data on non EU-biorefineries, thus enabling the comparison between the current status of this subsector of the bioeconomy in different parts of ...
