Building Based on Biobased

A leap of scale in Building Based on Biobased, that's our aim!

In the BBoBB project, 16 partners across five countries in the North Sea region work together to design, develop and strengthen value chains for the use of biobased materials. In our partnership all parts of the value chain are represented.

We believe that the transition to a circular economy is an important means of working on climate challenge, with the prospect of new business models. Therefore, the use of biobased materials in construction (built environment, interior construction and civil engineering) offers a unique opportunity which we want to seize.

Let's work on a circular economy together!

Building Based on Biobased

Developing, reinforcing and demonstrating value chains for biobased construction

A number of frontrunners are aware of the urgency and opportunities of biobased materials, but are encountering various obstacles to take further steps. BBoBB is about developing, reinforcing and demonstrating value chains for biobased construction so that everyone in the chain – from farmer to builder – is able and willing to make a joint contribution to the challenges of our time.

Overarching obstacles currently experienced are of organizational, technical and juridical nature:

  • Lack of well-organized value chains
  • Fragmented and partly missing knowledge and data
  • Facilitating government policies, laws and regulations
  • Awareness among different parties in the chain
  • Financial feasibility of biobased construction materials

The objective of BBoBB is to tackle these challenges in the NSR by developing a transnational approach for the valorisation of biobased value chains. This will be demonstrated in 5 regional pilots, where developed methods and business models are actually applied.

Work plan

All the activities in our work plan aimed at strengthening and scaling up the use of biobased materials. They are divided over three categories: governance and policy (WP1); demonstration of costs and benefits (WP2); design and awareness (WP3).

The structure of activities and composition of the project partnership ensure that all parties in the chain can be brought together. The transnational cooperation and exchange of knowledge thus offers a scale leap for creating both economic and environmental impact with the application of biobased materials.

This project is co-funded by the European Union
