The BBI workprogram is centered around 5 VALUE-chains and a set of Innovation Actions, including the socalled Flagship Actions (Call 1), but also in later calls including Research & Innovation and Demonstration actions.
The five value-chains of BBI are:
• Value-chain 1 – From lignocellulosic feedstock to advanced biofuels, bio-based chemicals and biomaterials
• Value-chain 2 – The next generation forest-based value chains
• Value-chain 3 – The next generation agro-based value chains
• Value-chain 4 – Emergence of new value chains from (organic) waste
• Value-chain 5 – The integrated energy, pulp and chemicals biorefineries
The information meeting clearly affirmed that there are significant opportunities for Danish Enterprises and Public Organisations (Universities) to participate in the BBI Program.
