Bioeconomy

The bioeconomy offers great opportunities for us humans and our society. With its help, our economic system should become more resource-saving and climate-friendly. Plants, animals, bacteria or waste should reduce the use of fossil fuels and thus reduce CO2 emissions. For example, plastic can be produced thanks to microorganisms. Raw materials such as metals can be recovered from waste or wastewater.
