A source of inspiration for the bio-based economy
The unavoidable transition from finite fossil fuels to biomass is one of the major topics of discussion of the day. The bio-based economy works on the principle that raw materials, namely renewable biological resources, can be processed in environmentally friendly ways, and turned into products that can easily be reconverted into raw materials at the end of their life cycle, during which more of the original biological resource will have grown. Consequently, a centre for bio-based activity is a logical and necessary step in the development of the existing sustainable business park. The Biosintrum will be energy-neutral, built from natural materials, and will act as a source of inspiration for students and professionals alike. The centre will offer a tangible experience of the bio-based economy, and provide a home for knowledge sharing and innovation.
