“… when information about bio-based (carbon) content is exchanged between businesses, or from business to consumer, it is crucial to be aware of these differences…”
Recent years have seen the emergence of exciting new bio-based products into the market. Supported by a wave of innovation and the development of knowledge and technologies that have allowed new transformation processes and product development, we’ve seen the bio-based industry become increasingly established. However, there are still significant challenges - clear and transparent communication about the characteristics of bio-based products is essential to avoid confusion in the market place. There is still uncertainty among the public, and even at times within the industry itself. And in the a global business, this confusion crosses international borders too.
Two true experts in this area; Harmen Willemse MSc, (Senior Consultant), NEN and dr. ir. Maarten van der Zee (Senior Scientist Biobased Products), Wageningen Food & Biobased Research have written an exclusive White Paper for us looking at the differences in Communicating the bio-based content of products in the EU and the US. It's essential reading for anyone serious about a global bio-economy, so download for free today.
