BIOCLUSTER aims at promoting the transition of the Flemish industry to a more sustainable biobased economy.
The main target groups are companies from the agro-industry, technology developers and the chemical sector. A central theme in the project is the development of new economic value chains around the 5 main product groups of the biobased economy: bioplastics, biosurfactants, biomaterials, biosolvents and biolubricants. Companies from different sectors were brought together in thematic workshops with the aim to find new value-chains that can be implemented in a relatively short term, and that create a win-win for the participating parties.
The open innovation campus functions as a catalyst for the development of new biobased value chains and provides quick plug & play solutions to companies.
The BIOCLUSTER project is supported financially by Agentschap Ondernemen, in the framework of ‘Vlaanderen in Actie’ and ‘Nieuw Industrieel Beleid’.
