Project description

The study at hand researches to what extent the Flemish economy is biobased today and what the future expectations are. The study delimits the biobased sector to non-traditional applications of biomass, thereby the agrofood sector as well as feed production are not incorporated. The used methodology in the research consists of a combination of interviews and literature study.
