EFIB, Brussels, 28th October 2015 – the leading bioeconomy clusters in the Netherlands, France, the UK and Germany have today joined forces as the 3BI intercluster – Brokering Bio-Based Innovation. Their goal is to support European companies to access important new markets based on renewable raw materials successfully.

3BI is a strategic European partnership that builds on the complementary strengths of four regional innovation clusters: Biobased Delta, BioEconomy, BioVale and Industries & Agro Ressources (IAR). All four clusters use biorefining to convert biological resources into materials, chemicals, fuels, food and feed. They intend to work together in the research, development and deployment of novel high-tech approaches to the conversion of biomass and waste streams into value-added products and applications.

The production of renewable biological resources and their conversion into every day products such as food, feed, energy, chemicals and other materials is increasing rapidly. The bioeconomy creates new markets for innovative products across the globe. European companies need support if they are to access these important new markets successfully. The formation of the 3BI intercluster represents a common intention to explore business linkages between the clusters and their members. 3BI will help European companies to make the most of new markets and new opportunities from the bioeconomy. The 3BI partners focus on growth, innovation and smart specialisation of their regions. Their goal is to promote sustainable solutions for lower carbon footprint and to substitute fossil raw materials in industrial scale.

“The bioeconomy not only helps to significantly reduce our society’s carbon foot-print, but provides a lot of opportunities for new markets and high-value products and links the European agriculture and forestry to processing industries like chemicals, automotive or plastics. To combine the power of four of the leading bioeconomy regions within 3BI will strengthen the leadership of the European Union in a future economy based on renewable resources.” Prof. Dr. Matthias Zscheile, BioEconomy (Germany)
