publié le , mis à jour le

Date : le 24 Mai 2016 de 10h à 16h30.
Lieu : Koordinationsstelle der Wissenschaften, Rue du Trône 98, B-1050 Bruxelles.

Who should participate : Industry stakeholders of product groups considered in the project (see below).

Objective of the workshop : Validation of interim results and recommendations with industry stakeholders.

Open-Bio investigates how markets can be opened for bio-based products through standardization, labelling and procurement. Part of the Open-Bio project deals with the question of whether the EU Ecolabel can be extended to explicitly cover bio-based products, and if yes, how. The objective was to assess the suitability of ecolabel criteria for bio-based products or, in other words, to find out whether the existing criteria of ecolabels can be applied to bio-based products, whether there are conflicts of harmonization and whether additional criteria can or should to be added in order to adequately label bio-based products.

Product groups at the focal point of the analysis :

- Plant-oil based paints and varnishes
- Rinse-off cosmetics with bio-based ingredients
- Absorbent hygiene products
- Detergents
- Mulching films & other plastic agricultural equipment (plant clips etc.)
- Disposables for food
- Wood-plastic composites (WPC)
- Cellulosic fibres
- Bio-based solvents

This workshop is part of the Open-Bio project, funded by the European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (

Participation is free of charge and is limited to 40 participants ! Please register until 16th of May at
