Bioeconomy refers to the sustainable management of renewable natural resources, which is why there is no such thing as a bioeconomy industry in the traditional sense. However, there are companies in Baden-Württemberg that use biomass as raw material base and have already developed products and processes in their effort to act more sustainably
Bioeconomy stakeholders in Baden-Württemberg
The universities, universities of applied sciences and research institutions in Baden-Württemberg cover the full range of research topics and subjects that are essential for the bioeconomy, including in particular the agricultural sciences, forestry, soil science, plastics technology, materials science, textile engineering, food technology, energy, food technology, economics, chemistry, biology, biotechnology, ecology and ethics.
As the transition from a fossil fuel-based economy to a biobased economy requires fundamental changes, many stakeholders need to work together to achieve this goal. BIOPRO is therefore engaged in close dialogue with research institutions, companies, networks, associations and initiatives. Joint presentations at trade fairs, thematic collaborations, cooperation in concepts and activities result from this dialogue.
