Copa-Cogeca welcomes public/private BI partnership

Copa-Cogeca (EU agricultural cooperatives and organisations) stated in a press release published on 10 July that it welcomes the start of a European public/private partnership to share bio-industry technologies. This project is in line with the bio-economy trend in using renewable energy sources, green chemistry and biofuels instead of fossil fuels. To this end, the objective of the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC), which will lead the project, is to use Europe’s untapped waste and biomass by commercialising technologies currently in the development stage.
