Presentation Is the Bio-Economy a Future Model?

Jahrestagung: 15th Biomass Symposium
Event by: Institut für angewandtes Stoffstrommanagement (IfaS)
01.01.70, Umwelt-Campus Birkenfeld, Neubrücke (Nahe)

The main focus of the 15th biomass symposium of the Institute for Applied Material Flow Management (IfaS) comprised the topic “Perspectives and strategies for a rural bio-economy”. The keynote speech at the beginning of the symposium of Johannes Rupp outlined chances and possibilities as well as limiting factors of the bio-economy. The substitution of fossil raw materials offers on the one hand various opportunities to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, but on the other hand limited potentials and an increasing competition for renewable raw resources lead to shortages concerning the supply of biomass. Therefore a rural bio-economy requires – also with regard to identified employment and value-added effects in selected bioenergy-regions – an appropriate taking of decisions.
