societal and business innovations are needed in the transformation to bioeconomy.
Technology and science are playing a key role when developing future innovations. The future
bioeconomy requires a multidisciplinary approach.
The Bioeconomy Transformation
programme combines various competences in the area of chemistry, biotechnology,
process, nano, energy, and information technologies, as well as foresighting
and business development in order to expand the limits of today's technologies.
Bioeconomy calls for development of new business models together with strong
exploitation of digitalisation.
One of the goals
of the Finnish Bioeconomy Strategy is to double the turnover of bioeconomy by
2025 to EUR 100 billion. The VTT Bioeconomy Transformation programme aims at sustainable utilisation of renewable natural resources
and renewing of Finnish industries. We develop technologies for new value
chains, in which forest and agro biomass is refined to food and fibre products,
chemicals and fuels.
infrastructures, BioRuukki piloting ecosystem and pilot facilities in Otaniemi, Tampere and
Jyväskylä, provide a strong support for our development work. We can combine high
level research, product and process development, comprehensive process
understanding and modelling and piloting in an industrially feasible scale.
