Bioeconomy means a renewable, fossil-free future
If we are to create a more sustainable future, we need to change the way we produce and consume. Our environmental impact is significantly reduced when we replace products made from fossil resources with bio-based alternatives. In a bioeconomy, all products are made from renewable resources such as raw materials and byproducts from forestry or agriculture, and substances found in trees and plants can be used for many purposes other than just building houses and making paper.
RISE works with climate-smart materials, fossil-free fuels and green chemicals – as well as system analysis, resource efficiency, trial services, service design, and new business models and policy issues.
Cooperation in industry is a vital element in the transformation process. The Bioeconomy Research Programme is RISE’s contribution to this cooperation. Our multiclient programme offers a unique business network, a meeting place for discussion and lively exchanges of challenging ideas. Working together will allow us to accelerate the transformation of industry for the new bioeconomy.
