10 years ago the need to turn a fossil economy into a bio-economy to address greening and scarcity of oil was the main driver for innovation and investment, aimed at like-for-like replacement, Today we see that product performance, sustainability plus customer voice and awareness are driving the demand for new products. In the Biobased Delta region and cluster our corporates, SME companies, scale-ups and start-ups respond to this driver by focusing on the development of advanced bio-materials. The presentation will give three unique examples of the innovative efforts that are ongoing in the building & infrastructure sector: (i) lignin in asphalt for noise reduction and Carbon Capture Storage (CCS) (ii) agro & green residues in biocomposites for lightweight construction and CCS, (iii) Natural fibers in cement for CCS and novel designs, much liked by architects and the public. Thus giving support to the need for product performance, sustainability and customer voice.
