Europe bears a significant potential to create, develop, manage and exploit innovative supply chains in the field. Knowledge and innovation capacities are there. However, such potential lies unexploited due to a lack of “enabling conditions” within the regional or national contexts. 

    ENABLING is the initiative of 16 partners in 13 EU and associated (IL, NO) countries. The main goal is to support the spreading of best practices and innovation in the provision (production, pre-processing) of biomass for the BBI (Bio-Based Industry). In particular, ENABLING aims at creating appropriate conditions for the development of efficient biomass to BBPs (Bio-Based Products and Processes) value chains. 

    ENABLING is based on the consortium’s vision that the biomass to BBPs value chains can enhance economic growth, a sound management of natural resources and positively contribute to job-creation in the regions and countries where they can be deployed.

    The ENABLING objectives


    Most farms have neither sufficient scale or biomass volume, nor appropriate biomass specialisation and differentiation to meet the requirements and needs of the BBP industry. 


    Many farms have poor or no information about supply chains "from Biomass to Biorefineries" in their environment.



    Most farms manage their biomass production based on consolidated bilateral relations with one buyer, and use limited planning of management approaches to diversify and schedule production



    Many farms do not have appropriate knowledge in the valorisation and marketing of biomass for BBPs

    Economic Impact

    By the end of the project

    -Growth for the biomass producers in the regions/countries participating between 10% and 20% 
    -About 5-10% optimisation of processes in obtaining biomass for the BBIs
    -Support to the creation of 2-5 new business (or lines of business in existing companies) 

    Within two years from Innovation Brokerage Platform set-up

    -Between 30-40% increase in the supply of biomass to the BBI
    -About 20% increased efficiency in supply of biomass for the BBIs. 
    -Support to the creation of about 10 new businesses in the biomass to BBPs sector



    Environmental Impact

    By the end of the project

    5% contribution to efficiency of biomass production and supply to the BBPs 

    Within two years from Innovation Brokerage Platform set-up

    Between 5% and 15% enhanced shift to circular economy approaches in the provision of organic material to BBPs


    Social Impact

    By the end of the project

    We expect a rough 1:1 ratio in the set up of new biomass-BBPs supply and the creation of job, mainly on the BBI side
