INDUSTRIAL BIOTECHNOLOGY
A key enabler for the
biobased economy…
…an envisioned future
where biomass
replaces fossil oil

• Generate €31bn in revenues*
• Save €49bn on oil import*
• Strengthen innovation/technological leadership
• Up to 1mill. jobs by 2020* mainly in rural
zones
• Increase energy security by substituting more
than 50% of all gasoline
• Reducing GHG emission from gasoline related
road transport by 50%

BARRIERS TO DEPLOYMENT IN EUROPE
Need for biomass collection
infrastructure
No market for residues
Conversion economics –
economies of scale
Biorefinery financing
No incentives for demand for
biobased product
