Grünalgen im Dunkelfeld: Mikroalgen stellen aus Sonnenlicht, Kohlendioxid und Wasser in kurzer Zeit große Mengen an Biomasse her und sind auch eine alternative und gesunde Proteinquelle.  Sie benö-tigen keine landwirtschaftlichen Flächen. Mikroalgen sind daher Hoffnungsträger für die Transformation in eine nachhaltige Versorgung mit Rohstoffen und Energie.

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.

Bioeconomy – Diverse opportunities for the sustainable development of Baden-Württemberg

The opportunities of the bioeconomy for sustainable development in Baden-Württemberg are diverse. Technologies involving organisms, their components, metabolic services and products, but also biogenic waste can be used to reduce or replace the consumption of fossil raw materials.

State strategy "Sustainable Bioeconomy for Baden-Württemberg"

With the state strategy "Sustainable Bioeconomy for Baden-Württemberg", the state government supports the necessary change to a resource-efficient and cycle-oriented economy based on renewable and biological resources. The goals of the strategy is to be implemented with 37 concrete measures

Das Prinzip der „biologischen Entfettung“ besteht darin, Fette und Öle von den Oberflächen abzuwaschen, zu emulgieren und dann durch den Fettstoffwechsel der Lebensgemeinschaft ölabbauender Mikroorganismen im Wesentlichen zu Kohlendioxid und Wasser abzubauen.

"Green Clean – How To Remove Oils and Greases from Surfaces"

Surface cleaning, and in particular the removal of oils and greases, is an important cross-sectional technology, particularly in the metal and plastic processing industry. It guarantees technically flawless further processing in the coating and surface treatment.

Phosphorus recovery

People, animals and plants cannot live without phosphorus. Baden-Württemberg is almost completely dependent on phosphorus imports from other countries and would like to change this. In 2012, a phosphorus recovery strategy was developed for Baden-Württemberg with the recommendation to use sewage sludge as a secondary source of phosphorus. With the ERDF funding program "Phosphorus Recovery", the Ministry of the Environment supports three plants for phosphorus recovery from sewage sludge.

National Bioeconomy Strategy

With the national bioeconomy strategy, the federal government sets the guidelines and goals for its future bioeconomy policy. It builds on the "National Research Strategy Bioeconomy 2030" and the "National Policy Strategy Bioeconomy" and henceforth bundles research funding and the political framework for the bioeconomy in Germany.
