INNOVATION ROADMAP AND ACTION PLAN
Replacing fossil fuel-based fuels, chemicals and materials with sustainable bio-based alternatives from residues and wastes could reduce greenhouse gas emissions, providing a renewable alternative for hard-to-abate sectors and support rural jobs. To realize this potential and to make sustainable bio-based alternatives from residues and wastes cost-competitive, Mission members are collaborating through the Integrated Biorefineries Mission.
In September 2022, the Integrated Biorefineries Mission launched a roadmap in which the gaps and challenges in current biorefining value chains have been identified and key actions to support the Mission have been prioritized. The roadmap and its annexes can be found here:

“Mission Biorefineries offers an integrated and holistic zero-waste biorefinery approach to scaling up clean energy innovation for a low carbon sustainable future through a global collaborative alliance. India and Netherlands are leading this mission to address the current challenges with active engagement of MI Members, partners and industries.”
Dr. Jitendra Singh, Indian Minister of State for the Ministry of Science and Technology & Earth Sciences
“Cost reduction & high performance of sustainable and advanced biofuels is important for low carbon hard to abate transport sectors. The integrated Biorefinery Mission will address the innovations gaps to develop and demonstrate commercially viable bio based fuels with coproduction of chemicals and materials leading to low carbon economy. India and Netherlands will develop innovation roadmap with Brazil, Canada, EC, UK and other collaborative members and partners for successful implementation of Integrated Biorefineries Mission”
Dr. Sangita M. Kasture, Coordinator MI India
“Participation in Mission Innovation 2.0 is of great importance to the Netherlands. Therefore, we are proud to be able to co-lead the soon to be launched Integrated Biorefineries Mission. Countries, knowledge institutes, industry, all are welcome to join this mission and help us set up and promote RD&D, realize pilot-scale demonstrations and boost public-private partnerships. Together we can achieve more.”
Rob Jetten, Dutch Minister for Climate and Energy Policy
