Linear industrial model dominates our material and energy demand posing serious stress on the fossils and environment. Fossil resources are finite and therefore require renewable process and resources as well to account sustainable. Shifting from linear to circular economy is at present major thrust around the globe to manage resources eco-efficiency. Circular economy decreases fossil based raw material consumption, increase resource efficiency, advocates renewable resources influx into the system and minimize environmental impact. Biobased circular economy or circular bioeconomy, an integral part of circular economy is anticipated to play a key role in achieving sustainability on environmental and resources front. Bioeconomy accounts for the material and process that are biological origin and mimic with the nature own mechanism to achieve resource efficient design. In this context, biorefinery concept is expected to play a major role in circling the bioeconomy keeping the principles of nature as basis. To accelerate the research and technology in this domain, concerted efforts from scientific community and poly makers along with federal government support is essential.
In this context, this SI is mainly intended to knit together the efforts made by research fraternity in this domain and provide the state-of-art research and technological developments, which enables to define the research need and data for the policy makers.
The SI will have review article (by invitation only from expert with proven expertise on the topic), research communications (short and full length) and case studies.Authors must ensure that their works if submitting to this SI falls in the scope of BITE (for this, they should refer guide for authors and see subject classification given there).
Keywords for SI:Bio-based products; Renewable resources; Biorefineries; Wastes as new feedstock; Industrial Symbiosis; Urban/Industrial Metabolism; Enabling processes/technologies; Integrated strategies; Self-Sustainable models; Life Cycle Assessment; Industrial biotechnology; Case studies; Smarter and sustainable bio-products; Resource productivity; eco-efficiency; valorisation of waste.
