Survey on bottlenecks and barriers for the bio-based economy

13 February 2014

The FP7 research project KBBPPS (Knowledge Based Bio-based Products’ Pre-Standardization) carries out pre-normative research on bio-based products that will feed into the work of CEN/TC411 for truly horizontal standards of bio-based products. One task within this is to analyse which circumstances hamper the development of the bio-based economy.
For this task, a survey is being conducting that asks concerned industry players for their experience with aspects that are negative for the market uptake of their bio-based products. The survey is only three questions long and the anonymised results will be published within the scope of the project (News Item nova-Institut, 5 February 2014).
