Market Analysis Questionnaire
RETROFEED main objective is to enable the use of an increasingly variable, bio-based and circular feedstock in process industries through the retrofitting of core equipment and the implementation of an advanced monitoring and control system, and providing support to the plant operators by means of a DSS covering the production chain (decision support system/digital twin).

The purpose of the research is to identify potential external barriers and opportunities (e.g. biomass availability, regulation etc.) from the perspective of resource and energy intensive industries considering the replication of solutions tested by RETROFEED demonstration sites. You can find more information about the solutions at

The project has received funding from the European's Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 869939.

Personal data will be treated in accordance to the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679. The information will be used only for the project purposes.

Responding this questionnaire confirm that your participation is voluntary and you have been informed about the treatment of your data by RETROFEED consortium and you authorize their use.
