Horizon 2020

Call identifier: H2020-BBI-JTI-2017


The 2017 call is the fourth in a total of seven Calls between 2014 and 2020. There are 4 strategic orientations: Feedstock, Process, Products, and Market uptake. As initiated in the Annual Work Plan (AWP) 2016, the AWP 2017 moves away from a strict biomass feedstock ‘push’ based on the traditional value chains, towards a demand for biomass to enable processing to respond adequately to a ‘pull’ from the end markets.

This call for proposals includes the following topics. Click on the topic to link directly to the Participant Portal.

BBI.2017.D1: Valorisation of liquid and solid side streams from bio-based operations into high added-value products to create new feedstock for bio-based products
BBI.2017.D2: Integrated multi-valorisation of algae into advanced materials and high added-value additives
BBI.2017.D3: Breakthrough primary bio-based chemicals without significant fossil-based counterparts but with high marketability
BBI.2017.D4: Innovative bio-based fertilising products to increase the sustainability of fertilising practices in agriculture
BBI.2017.D5: Advanced bio-based fibres and materials for large-volume applications
BBI.2017.F1: Integrated ‘zero waste’ biorefinery utilising all fractions of the feedstock for production of chemicals and materials
BBI.2017.F2: Large-scale production of proteins for food and feed applications from alternative, sustainable sources
BBI.2017.R1: Valorisation of gaseous side streams from bio-based operations into chemical building blocks
BBI.2017.R2: Innovative technologies for the pre-treatment and separation of lignocellulosic feedstock and complex composition streams into valuable fractions while maintaining key characteristics
BBI.2017.R3: Exploiting extremophiles and extremozymes to broaden the processing conditions to convert biomass into high-value building blocks
BBI.2017.R4: Proteins and other bioactive ingredients from side streams and residues
BBI.2017.R5: Novel bio-based chemical precursors to improve the performance of mass consumption products
BBI.2017.R6: Competitive biodegradable, compostable and/or recyclable bio-based plastics for a sustainable end-of-life phase
BBI.2017.R7: Novel secondary bio-based chemicals without significant fossil-based counterparts but with high application potential
BBI.2017.S1: Establish cooperation and partnership with brand owners and consumer representatives to improve the market access of sustainable bio-based products
BBI.2017.S2: Identify opportunities for ICT to increase the efficiency of biomass supply chains for the bio-based industry
