Most of us see fungi as just food - and possibly pathogens. This is a mistake, because these amazing organisms are capable of much more: they grow on plant residues of all kinds, forming a dense and interconnected structure as they spread. The resulting material can be moulded into desired shapes and be turned into new sustainable and economically attractive products such as leather and polystyrene substitutes or building materials.
Realignment of BIOPRO and new contacts for the bioeconomy in Baden-Württemberg
Due to a realignment of BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg with a focus on the health sector, we will no longer be managing the field of bioeconomy in Baden-Württemberg.. Therefore, the Bioeconomy BW portal will no longer be updated as of January 2024 but will remain online until the end of the year for research purposes.
Bioeconomy will continue to be important in Baden-Württemberg. In the future, you will find current information on the regional bioeconomy development in Baden-Württemberg on the portal for Sustainable Bioeconomy Strategy Baden Württemberg.
Information on Sustainable Bioeconomy for rural areas can be obtained from the Ministry of Food, Rural Affairs and Consumer Protection BW (link only available in German), as well as on the MLR's YouTube channel with videos about the winners of the Innovation Prize Bioeconomy.
In the future, you will receive information about the urban and industrial bioeconomy in Baden-Württemberg from the Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector, as well as all information on funding, support, events, and more under the Bioeconomy - Theme Page | Umwelttechnik BW .
