BBIA Focus Areas 2024-2027

We unite those working in the bio-based and biodegradable industries, through advocacy, collaboration, and education, to put the industrial bioeconomy at the centre of sustainability and economic growth in the UK.

We have three focus areas, which we see as key to unlocking the benefits of the industrial bioeconomy.

Each of our focus areas has a working group that delivers a mutually agreed 12-month rolling work plan, to further the BBIA vision for a more sustainable future, where the UK is a global leader in developing, manufacturing, using and exporting bio-based and biodegradable solutions.

We encourage all of our members to join one or more of our working groups.
