Global biomass production and use are under pressure, with the planet’s natural resources facing numerous threats, from the negative effects of climate change to ever-intensifying industrialization, mixed with unsustainable consumer behavior and increasing food and energy needs.
Considering today’s societal challenges, biomass has a critical role to play in the transition from an economy powered by fossil energy to a bioeconomy and, more broadly, a circular bioeconomy. This transition is urgently needed to avoid the most severe consequences of climate change.
As a circular bioeconomy player, France possesses numerous advantages. It is well-endowed with biomass resources, with significant forest and a powerful agriculture sector, being a major producer of, among others, cereals, and sugar beet. Moreover, France boasts a vibrant industrial ecosystem that covers the length and breadth of biomass-based value chains.
This event focuses on the role that companies in the biotechnologies sector have within the French bioeconomy, with several French companies, startups, and research institutes sharing their experiences and good practices.
