More than 2.5 billion tonnes of waste are produced every year in the European Union.
The circular economy is the most realistic expression of future development, involving reuse, repair and recycling of existing materials and products. In this direction, the circular bioeconomy still has enormous, largely untapped potential for farmers.
For example, advanced biorefineries producing biofertilizers, protein feeds, bioenergy and biochemicals offer opportunities for the transition towards a climate-neutral European economy and the creation of new jobs in primary production.
Farmers can reduce methane emissions from livestock farming; similarly, food industries can reuse residues and waste. This talk features experiences of companies that have already embarked on the road towards the circular bioeconomy.
