Welcome to the European website for the bio-based economy. This website presents the various aspects of the bio-based economy from different angles.
It is a portal to the relevant information and websites with further details on specific subjects.
The bioeconomy encompasses the production of renewable biological resources and the conversion of these resources, residues, by-products and side streams into value added products, such as food, feed, biobased products, services and bioenergy.
The transition towards a bio-based economy holds a great potential in terms of economic growth, rural development and decreasing fossil dependance, but requires tackling of many challenges at many levels.
