What is the bioeconomy?
Our planet has limited resources and faces global challenges like climate change, land and ecosystem degradation, coupled with a growing demand for food, feed, biobased materials and energy.
The bioeconomy is the sustainable use of renewable biological resources and industry technologies, to produce bio-based products and services for societal, environmental and economic gain now and in the future.
