Standards and Regulations for the Bio-based Industry

A proactive regulatory approach is an important driver in developing emerging industries and attracting investment. Similarly, a proactive approach to standardisation can help harmonise supply chains and create an environment that stimulates investment by reducing risks and offering a better potential return on investment.

The STAR4BBI project will help establish a coherent, well-coordinated and favourable regulatory framework that helps develop a cutting-edge bio-based economy for Europe.

STAR4BBI will support adaption of the regulatory framework and of relevant standards for selected existing value chains and the development of new value chains based on biomass from forests, from agriculture and from organic waste.


Expected impacts

This project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 720685
