IN 2050

Integrated and innovative circular operations produce food, feed, bio-based products, services and bioenergy while preserving ecosystems

Integrating food production that meets growing demand with innovative systems to valorise its side and residual streams into products and services for various market sectors; contributing to UN SDG 2 (Zero Hunger).

Operating on principles of circularity, returning the necessary ingredients to the soil to increase soil carbon content and avoid depletion, while furthering the use of compost as a fertiliser.

Enhancing biodiversity, including its social aspects, in the context of EU agricultural and environmental policies.

Bio-based operations utilise new and available feedstock sustainably and generate value-adding products with minimal environmental impact:

Utilising all fractions of renewable feedstock from multiple sources such as the land, sea, air (including CO2) and municipal bio-waste streams in a sustainable manner, through smart and efficient use of feedstock with zero-waste objectives.

Producing safe, nutritious and diverse food and feed for humans and animals, and achieving a sustainable consumption of animal and plant-based proteins; contributing to UN SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being).

Creating value for society and protecting the environment with sustainable high-quality solutions; this includes supporting the switch to renewable energy sources for all transportation modalities; contributing to UN SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy).

Ensuring efficient logistics and a continuous supply of sustainable food, feed and bio-based products and services for European citizens, while providing creative solutions for changing and new market sectors.

Interconnected bio-based operations exchange intermediate streams and achieve synergies

Incorporating operational efficiency and services, such as precision farming, process intensification, digitalisation, artificial intelligence and data science (including big data management and analysis)

Running large- and small-scale operations and modular processing systems that facilitate an efficient industrial ecosystem and enable SME participation throughout value chains

Spurring new business models that better integrate primary sectors and market actors and are fully operational across Europe.
