A new JRC report illustrates the work in building a database of EU facilities producing bioproducts


The EU bio-based industry is quickly evolving but clear data on the development of this emerging sector are still missing. A new JRC report illustrates the work of the JRC in building an extensive database of EU facilities producing different categories of bio-based products:

– bio-based chemicals

– liquid biofuels

– bio-based composites and fibres

– pulp and paper

– biomethane

– starch, sugar and derived products

– timber (sawmills)

The database is accompanied by an online interactive dashboard implemented in the EC Data portal of agro-economics Modelling (DataM) and in the EC Knowledge Centre for Bioeconomy.

When exploring the two pages of the dashboard, the user is invited to apply the available filters (product category, feedstock origin, TRL and country) to discover the EU bio-based sector. An additional filter is also provided to identify EU biorefineries, according to the user’s preferred definition of them: facilities producing multiple bio-based products, multiple bio-based product categories, or integrating the production of bio-based products and energy.
