Markets for Bio-Based Materials: Recent developments and projections with BioMAT

We developed a new tool named BioMAT (Bio-based Materials) for the representation of the stylized value chains of bio-based materials in the EU and its Member States. • The BioMAT database shows an increase in production of bio-based chemicals since 2010, with the respective increase in use of biomass as production input. • In 2018 production of bio-based chemicals in the EU reached 43 million tons or 14% of the total output volume of the organic chemical industry. The main application category of bio-based chemicals is ‘biofuels’, followed by ‘agrochemicals’ and ‘surfactants’. The main feedstocks in terms of volume are ‘plant oils’ and ‘starch’. • The BioMAT model provides forward-looking projections and shows further increase in production of bio-based chemicals that reaches 58 million tons by 2030.
