Abstract

This report is the final document of the project “Integrated Valorisation of Biomass Resources”. There are two major thresholds that need to be overcome to implement the necessary transition process to a more sustainable use of biomass resources: 1. A departmentalised approach to biomass application development blindfolds stakeholders for negative externalities; 2. Short term focus on quick wins and return on investments instigate a lack of sense of urgency, impeding the necessary actions that enable the long term transition process. The magnitude of the challenge could be paralysing, if it weren’t for the innovativeness of people and the ability to change. This project calls upon the examples of possible solution pathways that clearly show a road to a sustainable, biobased economy, that is an answer to these facing threats. Renewable resources are available in sufficient quantities to serve as sustainable input for Food, Feed, Functional materials and Fuels. The project wants to investigate the barriers and opportunities to overcome the mentioned thresholds and to inspire the stakeholders involved in further action.
