Die Borke der Kanarische Kiefer (Pinus Canariensis)

A bio-based wood protection against fire

Following the example of the Canary Island pine's bark, which defies forest fires, researchers are developing nanocellulose-based biobased fire-retardant coatings to protect wood indoors and out.

Mulching with hybrid paper

The polyethylene films commonly used in agriculture pollute the environment with microplastics. Biodegradable alternatives are therefore being searched for.

So sieht das Rohmaterial des Biopolymers PHB direkt nach der Synthese aus.

Using bacteria to produce plastic from waste

Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) is the plastic that researchers in the PHABIO APP joint project have produced biotechnologically:  It is produced from animal waste fats with the help of bacteria and is completely degradable in nature.

High performance without oxygen

Bioelectrochemistry enables economically attractive microbial biofactories. In the future, the proteobacterium Shewanella oneidensis could be used in this way for acetoin production.

Making the rhizosphere fit for the future

Modern agricultural systems must be able to meet the challenges of climate change. In the rhizosphere properties of older crops, researchers are looking for solutions for coping with environmental stress and increasing yield security.

All funding measures at a glance

As part of the "National Bioeconomy Research Strategy", a total of six federal ministries are supporting the development of a bio-based economy in Germany. There are also numerous funding measures at European level that are relevant to the bio-economy. In addition, the federal states offer research funding.

Our database provides an overview of all bioeconomy-relevant R&D calls in Germany and the European Commission.
