The BBIA will be hosting a workshop designed to bring together those working in the bioeconomy sector in the UK: companies, research institutes, associations, consultants and start-ups.
The BBIA has presented its views on the Circular Economy consultation to the European Commission.
When we started talking a year ago about opening a UK association to represent bio-based and biodegradable producing and converting companies, I had just about finished a long series of activities in the organic waste business and as part of a team that had successfully worked to get Italian and then EU legislation through to reduce plastic bag consumption. It had been a thrilling ride, and crowned with personal satisfaction too.
Since its establishment in June 2015 the BBIA has immediately engaged with policy makers.
