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 .

    All intact peatlands on our planet store twice the amount of CO2 as all forests. Peatlands are indispensable for preventing and mitigating the effects of climate change. The only problem is that 95 percent of Germany's peatlands have been drained, and thus release around 7 percent of Germany’s total CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. Rewetting is therefore imperative for the climate, the environment and biodiversity – and economically…

    Complicated cultivation, fluctuating yields and complex cleaning: Leisa – as lentils are called in Swabian – are demanding. So to produce lentils economically, 130 farmers in the Swabian Alb have joined forces and set up the organic producers’ association Alb-Leisa. Their lentil harvests are processed and marketed by a company called Lauteracher Alb-Feld-Früchte.
