The project targets six representative model regions, covering a broad range of market situations and technical-socio-economic barriers in the European bioenergy sector. Local market actors in the bioenergy sector obtain hands-on support during the implementation of the SSCM to overcome urgent barriers and foster market uptake in the regions. The support that SupplyChain provides to SMEs participating in its six pilots covers: innovation vouchers, technical support, Life Cycle Assessments (LCA), financial mentoring and sustainability certification.
The project is one of the relevant initiatives supporting the development and uptake of bio-based products at European and regional level identified by BIOWAYS. They have collaborated with BIOWAYS by providing valuable insights into their work and meaningful evidence and information regarding a series of areas such as their expected outputs and market uptake, the legislation and policy framework that affects them, the user’s perspective on their outputs and the impact, visibility and exploitation potential of their project/outputs.
