Description
The Biobased Economy is a sustainable economy in which fossil based sources are replaced by biobased sources (crops, biomass, etc). The Societal Roadmap Biobased Economy is a Netherlands -based project which aims to explore the perceptions in terms of concerns, needs and conditions of Dutch citizens regarding the bio-based economy. Focus group discussions were held with Dutch citizens on three subjects: 1) bioplastics, 2) biorefinery and 3) biojetfuels for the aviation industry. The project is done in collaboration with LEI (WUR) and Stichting Natuur& Milieu.
