EBD Programme: Economy, Policy and Sustainability

Sustainable innovation in general and more specifically related to biobased products strongly depends on clear and effective criteria for sustainability for the whole value chain, understanding of the economic parameters, the right policy and regulations and societal acceptance.

Flagship 11 EBD Programme: Economy, Policy and Sustainability focuses on providing insight into the societal preconditions for the economic and sustainable introduction of bio-renewable chemicals, materials, fuel and energy production. It provides policy recommendations on the likely macro-economic impact of the large-scale use of biomass in the Netherlands (including imports) and aspects of sustainability and contributes to (inter)national committees.
