Webinarreihe der vier Innovationsräume Bioökonomie IV

Location:   online (Gastgeber: Innovationsraum BioTexFuture – Textile Bioökonomie gestalten)

Info & Registration:   [no longer available]


Biological waste (e.g. waste from food production/agriculture) and biobased polymers as a substitution of petroleum-based raw materials for innovative textile materials

In the long term, the goal must be to become independent of fossil raw materials. The sources of recycling and biomass play a central role in this. For a sustainable circular economy (economic, ecological, social), it is indispensable to make residual materials usable again in high-quality products. In addition to the use of locally available residual material flows, locally produced, renewable-based raw materials (e.g. biopolymers) also help to reduce dependence on fossil raw materials.

The webinar will present existing solutions and innovations from industry and research. The presentations are intended to provide a holistic view of the value chains and a subsequent discussion.
