Across Europe, innovative companies are growing the bio-based economy, helping create jobs, spurring research and improving people’s lives. From planet-friendly bioplastics to new food ingredients, renewable energy solutions to sustainably produced chemicals, bioeconomy industries represent a resource-efficient and largely waste-free use of Europe’s renewable raw materials.
