Case studies

SUSTRACK selected 10 case studies that are facing critical challenges within the current linear system and requiring a sustainable transition to circular biobased systems most urgently. These case studies belong to the four most carbon-intensive sectors, identified in the Bioeconomy Strategy, as industrial sectors that are relevant for the decarbonization of the EU economy: construction, textile, chemical and plastics.

Discover promising applications selected by SUSTRACK as case studies, related barriers to the uptake of these bio-based solutions,
relevant policy actions and limits of the current linear fossil based economy.

The Case Studies will  be exploited to assess the environmental, social and economic impacts of the sustainable transition, and will allow comparability of circular, bio-based versus linear, fossil-based production systems.
