Algae are a valuable resource for food supplements, cosmetics, fertilisers and fuels. The JRC is compiling and analysing data on sustainable algae production and use in Europe.
To help measure a sustainable circular bioeconomy the JRC, in partnership with other Commission services and external experts, developed the EU Bioeconomy Monitoring System.
EU forests are expanding, and EU scientists balance wood provision with other ecosystem services for a sustainable circular bioeconomy.
What if paints and detergents could be made from crops, algae could be turned into fuel and industrial by-products could be transformed into fertilisers?
