New opportunities for the uptake of circular business models in the agro-food industry are emerging across the world to address climate challenges and contribute to the revitalisation of rural areas. The BBI JU BIOrescue project is one of them: through a circular biorefinery concept, the project is transforming waste from the agro-food industry into new bio-based products for agricultural uses.
The BIOrescue consortium will host the conference “Towards a circular agro-food industry” on 4 April 2019, in Brussels (Thon EU, rue de la Loi 75). The event will discuss the upcoming and desired evolutions of the European policy framework towards the development of a circular bioeconomy in the agro-food industry. This will be the chance for policy-makers, industry and trade association representatives, civil society groups and all interested stakeholders to discover and debate existing opportunities to foster the adoption of circular business models in the European agro-food sector.
Join the event to share your views and explore the circular business practices that will shape the agro-food industry of tomorrow.
