  • The event will highlight the recent contributions of Mission Innovation and the Biofuture Platform, as country-led multilateral initiatives, and of below50, a private-sector led initiative, to contribute to fulfill that need.
  • A related goal is that government officials, experts and industry players have an opportunity to show current activities, research projects, policies, investment plans and promising new technologies to achieve performance breakthroughs and cost reductions for sustainable large scale production and utilization of advanced biofuels and biomass.
  • The desired outcome is increased awareness among key policy makers and decision makers about the need to scale up the bioeconomy; the challenges ahead; the possible solutions; and how they could contribute both individually and as part of MI and Biofuture.
