Follow us on a journey towards a circular and biobased society and how we can mitigate climate change to make Europe prosperous.
A challenge facing large parts of the world today is how we deal with and respond to important societal challenges, such as the transition to a fossil-free economy, where biobased materials and products, as well as various forms of bioenergy are key components.
Northern Sweden is one of the regions in Europe with the highest proportion of forests land per area, with one of the world’s strictest regulations for sustainable forestry and an industrial value chain producing a variaty of biobased materials and products. We also have institutes as well as universities with forest related research. Therefore, the region has unique prerequisites for also producing green bioenergy and second generation advanced biofuels and at the same time pursuing excellence in accelerating the development of new biobased materials and products, with significant added value.
