FinnCERES will organize a public seminar “Redefining Bioeconomy” in Dipoli on March 5.
Future Bioeconomy is based on high value products utilizing the ingenuity of nature with renewable plant-based materials.
Lignocellulose offers solutions for sustainable textiles, novel packaging, air and water purification, electronics, energy storage and energy harvesting. It has a myriad of inherent, functional capabilities that can outplay its fossil based counter parts. Bioeconomy is not only about replacing fossils, it is also about creating entirely new materials.
