Circular meets Biobased

The bio-based economy plays an important part in the transition to a circular economy. The bio-based economy holds a prominent place in the long-term strategy of both Flemish and European policy.

Turning our fossil-based economy into a circular economy will not be enough to satisfy our increasing material needs. Extra material will be required, which we will have to draw from renewable, bio-based raw materials.

1. Also make known and clear

Together with the ‘Interdepartmental Working Group on Bio-economics’, which unites over a dozen government bodies, Circular Flanders clarifies the many links between bio-economics and the circular economy. And where the opportunities and good examples are found in Flanders.

2. Research

The bio-based economy also has the attention of the Steunpunt Circulaire Economie LINK Circular Economy Support Centre. The use of bio-based materials is one of the cases the researchers at the Support Centre are working on to apply the theoretical concepts of the different research fields.
