The circular bioeconomy and the concept of biorefinery
March 4-8, 2018
The world is living through a biotechnological and energetic transition phase. The 200-year-old model of a linear economy with its low energy cost and waste producing economy is being challenged by the exhaustion of the planet’s natural resources and by the accumulation of high levels of waste in the environment. Access to clean, renewable energy and fresh water supplies will determine the growth and development of future economies. Globalisation offers a new opportunity for addressing these challenges on a global scale.
