CASTLE Conference: Towards a Sustainable Bioeconomy

Wednesday, 15 April 2015 Posted in BioEco Forum News, News, Events

BBFnews20150402The CASTLE Conference on "Towards a Sustainable Bioeconomy: Innovative Methods and Solutions for the Agriculture and Forest Sectors" will take place in Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site in Barcelona, Spain, on 21-23 October 2015.

 

Moving towards a bioeconomy is one of the key policy strategies of the EU. Its vision is of a knowledge-based Europe turning to green growth via innovation, which presents opportunities for the agricultural and forest-based sectors. Sustainable production of renewable resources will be needed, with the conversion of these resources and waste streams into value added products, such as food, feed, bio-based products and bioenergy. Even though we currently lack a transparent and common understanding of the definition of a bioeconomy, we require improved tools and assessment methodologies to ensure that this intensified use of renewable biological resources is done sustainably.
