Over the recent years a major topic of discussion for scientists and policymakers has been Bioeconomy - the innovative and low-emissions economy, reconciling demands for sustainable agriculture and fisheries, food security, and the sustainable use of renewable biological resources for industrial purposes, while ensuring biodiversity and environmental protection. The new model can help to make the transition from a fossil fuel to a biobased economy, reduce the dependency on fossil fuels and affectively contribute to climate protection. To achieve it, the European Commission has developed a Bioeconomy Strategy and an action plan.
The development and commercialization of innovative sustainable technologies puts us closer to the Bioeconomy. Today rapid advances in molecular biology combined with big data and artificial intelligence have resulted in a big jump in our understanding of living organisms, including the biomass produced by plants and animals, at the level of their DNA.
There is a variety of biobased solutions on the market:
