Prof. Dr. Alfons Balmann
Impacts of a Dropout of Ukrainian and Russian Crop Production on the German Bioeconomy.
With today´s products, media and bioreactors, only a few tons of cultured meat can be produced. So it´s not about what the market already offers, but about forming a new market and shaping the future sustainably today.
Prof. Dr. Thomas Brück
For me, bioeconomy is a key to the sustainable transformation of industry and society. New products and processes will make our life and work climate-neutral.
Dr. Patricia Bubner
Biotechnology is the key to global food security. With climate change and lack of access to nutritious food for vulnerable populations, there is an urgency to act now. Orbillion is at the forefront of creating flavorful and healthy cultured meat. Meat made without the animal is not some far off future and has immense potential to democratize access to food.
Dr. Lars Börger
We need to take drastic action to achieve the necessary shift to a circular economy. In Neste RE we combine the best of renewable and recycled materials, creating a sustainable raw material alternative for the plastics and chemical industries.
Prof. Dr. Ludo Diels
Lignin opens the way to a sustainable circular economy.
Dr. Michael Duetsch
Founder & CMO, Landpack GmbH
With our technology for processing straw, we show how a sustainable, regional and circular bioeconomy can succeed with flows of residues.
Dipl.-Ing. Arne Gröngröft
Dr. Friedrich Gröteke
Garbage is just a resource in the wrong place.
Our daily food, our cultivated plants have not had much to do with naturalness for a long time anyway. And that´s very good! That´s how we overcame famine. #GiveGenesAChance
Dr. Karin Meißner
Dr. Klaus Pellengahr
Prof. Dr. Klaus Pillen
The breeding of climate-resilient crops is the crucial prerequisite for achieving the change to a plant-based bioeconomy in the next 10-20 years.
We have to renaturate as many fields as possible. Therefore we need for our food: vertical farming.
Dr. Jan Saam
Food has priority. We make biofuels from the rest. #strohklug.
Prof. Hans Joachim Schellnhuber
However, as much as wood can drive project development and the construction industry forward, without concepts in sectors such as power generation, transport or agriculture, climate stabilization cannot succeed in the long term.
Dr. habil. André Schiefner
Dr. Joachim Schulze
In the BioEconomy cluster, companies and research institutions jointly develop innovative processes and products for the production of new substances and materials for the development of a bio-based economy and this should conquer the world from Central Germany.
Prof. Dr. Ulrich Schurr
The bioeconomy as a strategic answer for regions undergoing structural change.
Dr. Frank Thonfeld
The climate crisis has long been here. From space we can see how fast the forest is disappearing.
Mabel Gisela Torres Torres
For a country like Colombia, bioeconomic development is crucial for the well-being of its population.
Bioeconomy is more than a new concept or buzzword. It is a good example of green growth and covers all sectors that rely on renewable, biological resources, for example, food systems. But in fact it goes way beyond that.
