ICT-BIOCHAIN main objective is to identify opportunities for ICT to increase the efficiency of biomass supply chains for the bio-based industry. This way, the project can play a key role in making Europe’s bio based supply chains more efficient and contributing to several key BIC SIRA strategic objectives for 2020 and 2030 including:
- Delivering a 10% increase in biomass supply in Europe by 2020 (20% by 2030) by increasing productivity and mobilisation in a sustainable manner while making best use of innovations in agriculture and forestry practices
- Ensuring 20% of the chemicals and materials production in Europe will be bio-based by 2020 (30% to 2030); this is compared to the current situation 10% of chemicals and materials being bio-based;
- To help guarantee a secure and sustainable supply of biomass feedstock for European biorefineries;
- Boost the mobilisation and utilisation of 15 % of currently unused sources per year by 2020.
