POWER4BIO aims at empowering regional stakeholders in Europe to boost the transition towards bioeconomy by providing them with the necessary tools and guidance to develop and implement sustainable regional bioeconomy strategies. One of the tools that has been developed is an online accessible and searchable database containing to date 35 factsheets on bio-based resource-efficient biorefineries for production of biomaterials, biochemicals, food & feed and bioenergy. The catalogue intends to be used by regional stakeholders – e.g. policy makers, industry (associations), consultants and other interested parties – to get an overview of available promising options to convert a wide range of biomass feedstock into an array of bio-based products. The solutions shall inspire regions to replicate them in their local context.The content topics in the factsheets have been jointly established through all POWER4BIO partners by involving regional stakeholders. The factsheets contain a short description and several characteristics of the solution, as well as information regarding suitability of biomass feedstock for production of the target product, benefits of the solution related to the value chain and specific constraints for implementation.The online accessible database is available via a simple interface at www.bio-based-solutions.eu. The user may apply different searching criteria to facilitate finding solutions of interest: feedstock, technology, TRL, products, as well as via words in the Summary and Technology Description. Once a solution is selected for viewing, the user may navigate to other solutions with similar content via keywords. Details of solutions of interest can be exported to PDF and printed if wished. Guidelines on how to use and search the catalogue are available on the catalogue website. The web-based database is working on any device (PC, tablet, smartphone) with any operating system (Windows, Linux, Mac, IOS, Android) that uses a standards-compliant browser.
