AGMPM joined BIC (Bio-based Industries Consortium)

BIC is a non-profit organisation set up in Brussels in 2013. BIC represents the private sector in a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) with the European Commission. This public-private partnership aims to invest € 3.7 billion in bio-based innovation between 2014 and 2020.

BIC members cover the entire bio-based value chain and consist of large industries, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), regional clusters, European trade associations, and European Technology Platforms. Any interested stakeholders along the bio-based value chain may apply for Full or Associate membership.

BIC’s vision is to accelerate the innovation and market uptake of bio-based products and to position Europe as a world-leading, competitive bio-based economy where the basic building blocks for chemicals, materials and advanced biofuels are derived from renewable biological resources.

BIC’s mission is to build innovative bio-based value chains by developing new biorefining technologies, optimising feedstock use, and creating a favourable business and policy climate to accelerate market acceptance of bio-based products.

Bio-based industries optimise land use and food security through a sustainable, resource-efficient and largely waste-free utilisation of Europe’s renewable raw materials for industrial processing into a wide array of bio-based products: chemicals, materials, food ingredients, feed, energy and advanced biofuels.

In doing so, bio-based industries play an important role in spurring sustainable growth and boosting Europe’s competitiveness by re-industrialising and revitalising rural and coastal areas, thus providing tens of thousands of high-skilled research, development and production jobs.
