The World BioEconomy Forum is promoting this year’s World Bioproduct Day in a collaboration with BioVoices. The initiative is also supported by Transition2Bio, The European Bioeconomy Network and the SPRING – Italian Cluster of Circular Bioeconomy.
During the campaign any stakeholders of the circular bioeconomy can share their story of their favourite bioproduct via social media by using the hashtag #bioproductday2022 and/or #bioproductday. The ten most interesting stories will be interviewed by BioVoices and the three most interesting stories selected by the World BioEconomy Forum will have the opportunity to showcase their bioproduct story at the World BioEconomy Forum 2022.
To further enhance the bioeconomy, the World Bioeconomy Forum has released a new digital platform called worldbiorefineries.com, which is indicating forest based biorefineries and emerging bioproducts in Europe. The first product on this platform is the Biorefinery Map™, published in conjunction with the PulPaper 2022 in Helsinki on 7 – 9 June 2022.
Founder of the Forum, Jukka Kantola, is delighted, “We’ll hope that world bioproduct day will solidify its position to enhance developments of the bioeconomy. We need show cases and each of us can share his or her story. Also, we are proud to release the first digital platform for biorefineries and emerging bioproducts in Europe. As an old proverb states: “what gets measured, will get done!”
