Short description:

The development of a bioeconomy requires process innovations that allow an efficient utilization and
valorisation of raw and residual materials. Process innovations in the bioeconomy encompass
processes and technologies that use biogenic raw materials and residues as a starting substrate, as
well as bio-based processes that use the metabolic activities of living organisms such as
microorganisms, bacteria or algae. In both cases, the goal must be to develop environmentally friendly,
flexible and economically feasible processes that can be industrially scaled up quickly (Bioeconomy
BW n.d.).
