Biomass & Food

Due to the growth of the global population and the increase of the level of prosperity worldwide, the need for biomass for food production and other applications increases significantly. At the same time, the ecological capacity of the earth has already been exceeded; consider the deforestation, the decrease in biodiversity, the disrupted nitrogen, phosphate and carbon cycles, and the decline of soil quality. Circular Economy strategies have the potential to offer solutions: reduce food waste, recovery and reuse, composting and produce chemicals from waste. Find relevant showcases, events and news below.
