The forest‐based sector’s increasingly important role in the future bio-economy will include providing renewable and green energy solutions and by multiplying the use of wood in carbon-positive housing and furnishings. The sector will help to replace petroleum‐based plastics and contribute to clean water technologies, intelligent communication media, novel medicines, healthy food ingredients, as well as environmentally-friendly, wood‐based alternatives to synthetic fibres and cotton for the production of textiles. FTP, in conjunction with the European Forum for Industrial Biotechnology and the Bio-based Economy (EFIB), is organizing a pre‐conference workshop dedicated to the wood-‐based bioeconomy.
