"RoadToBio": Roadmap for the chemical industry towards bioeconomy published

The RoadToBio consortium presents a roadmap to the (chemical) industry as well as many other stakeholders to inspire them to take relevant actions on the way towards a more bio-based future.

RoadToBio started in May 2017 with the objective to develop a roadmap outlining a path for achieving a 25 % share of bio-based products in the EU organic chemical industry in 2030 (as compared to 10 % share in 2016).

The roadmap is intended to provide an evidence-based foundation for the EU chemical industry upon which future policy can be implemented and actions developed. For this the consortium developed three different kinds of documents to offer an easy way to dive deep into the bio-based production

-.Action Plan summarising actions for implementing the roadmap as a first entry point to the results of RoadToBio

- Strategy Document providing in-depth background information on the drive for bio-based market growth, as well as the opportunities and barriers to increasing the share of bio-based chemicals in nine product groups

- Engagement Guide providing communication tools to promote bio-based chemicals and easy-to-read information on the Roadmap

Further information can be found on the RoadToBio-Website.

EC Library High Solid Binders


High Solid Binders

High solids are the epitome of high performance and low environmental impact. They are usually the best option where solvent-borne systems would otherwise be the only choice. This book delivers comprehensive knowledge in the field of high solid systems. More especially, it provides an overview of the various classes of binders and ways of transforming them into high solid binders. It lists a broad range of options and approaches for tackling technological and environmental problems. This book addresses the paint and coatings chemists for a better understanding of chemistries and processes involved in film forming hopefully helping in coating design.
