The Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI JU) has signed grant agreements with 22 projects selected for funding under the 2019 Call for proposals. This brings the total of BBI JU grants to 123. The 218 beneficiaries participating in the new projects will receive financial support worth €106 million.
Announcing the start of these new projects, Philippe Mengal, BBI JU’s Executive Director commented: ‘This year again I am impressed by the quality and the ambition behind the new projects. We can see new areas of the bio-based industries now covered, demonstrating how vital BBI JU is for the development of the sector in the continent. Moreover, it confirms the crucial role the EU bio-based industries can play in the green recovery of Europe.’
BTG Biomass Technology Group BV takes active part in two of these projects.
Allthings.bioPRO will involve citizens in setting the bio-based industry agenda, by launching online and offline consultation and discussion.
BIOSWITCH will help brand owners from chemistry, forest, food and agriculture sectors switching to bio-based production by assisting them throughout this journey, as well as supporting their communication with public administration and consumers.
Stay tuned for more news on these projects when they kick-off later this year.
