What is the bioeconomy and how could it help fight climate change?
Dr Silje Steinsholm, a scientist at the Norwegian Institute of Food, Fisheries and Aquaculture Research in Norway was interviewed by Horizon, the EU Research and Innovation Magazine to discuss the circular bioeconomy.
In this interview, our project partner Dr Silje Steinsholm explains how AQUABIOPRO-FIT seeks to create value from marine side streams. The project contributes to the bioeconomy by finding new ways to sustainably use our biomasses and waste as little as possible, for it is important to make the most of the natural resources we already use.
A circular bioeconomy – which turns renewable biological resources and waste streams into new products – is at the heart of the EU’s efforts to reduce its carbon emissions while also maintaining economic growth. In this article, Horizon asked five young experts and activists what the bioeconomy means to them and what needs to happen for it to become a reality, including:
• Dr Silje Steinsholm from the Norwegian Institute of Food, Fisheries and Aquaculture Research
• Daria Wohlt from the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging in Germany,
• Gabija Imbrasaitė, a medical student at the Lithuanian University of Health Sciences,
• Dr Anne-Clémence Corbin from French engineering school École Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Industries Textiles, and
• Johann Liebeton, a biology student at the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany
