Our areas of action
We view diversity as an essential prerequisite for a circular bioeconomy.
In both natural and economic systems, diversity promotes flexibility, adaptation, optimization of functions and resilience.
A variety of products, processes, actors, and collaborations can close loops when the output of one process or actor becomes the input of another process/actor.
For a circular bioeconomy, we believe that cross-sector diversification is also particularly necessary.
Digital tools support us in information gathering, process control and management based on real-time information.
They support the diversification of primary biomass production, utilization and sales opportunities.
Networking is a core function of digitalization, but so far it is only partial.
For a biobased circular economy, holistic, systemic approaches are required.
Microorganisms cause numerous essential material transformation processes in bioeconomic production systems.
Knowledge of the composition of microbial communities (microbiomes) allows us to predict the stability of desired conditions or impending undesirable changes and to trigger control responses. Microbiomes are interconnected via biomass flows in bioeconomy systems.
