The bioeconomy refers to the set of economic activities relating to the invention, development, production and use of biological products and processes. To transition from a fossil fuel based economy to a bioeconomy, new value chains, utilising biobased resources and innovation are required.
The bioeconomy has the potential to maintain and create economic growth and jobs in rural, coastal and industrial areas, reduce fossil fuel dependence and improve the economic and environmental sustainability of primary production and processing industries.
