The ALIGNED project aims to improve the Environmental Sustainability of five industrial bio-based sectors: construction, woodworking, textiles, pulp and paper, and bio-based chemicals by improving the overall performance of bio-based products from these sectors and improving the methods by which this Environmental Sustainability is measured and analyzed and to make sure these methods are aligned to each other.
The ALIGNED project will deliver a modelling framework to assess and optimize the environmental and socio-economic performance of bio-based products. In order to test this framework, it will be applied to five case studies in five bio-based sectors. Additionally, to translate the findings from the case studies to learnings for the whole sector, an overview of each of the five sectors at large was compiled with a specific focus on their bio-based products. A summary of these results is available per sector, as presented below.
