In Flanders, expertise and knowledge go hand in hand with biobased operations through a local, high-potential, biobased ecosystem that interfaces biobased feedstock resources, business and research enablers, and market demand. Some of these include: Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP), VITO (Flemish institute for technological research), VIB (Flemish institute for biotechnology), Catalisti, Flanders’ FOOD, and many more.

Given the absence of large caches of natural resources, Flanders has gained early expertise in the smart use of raw materials and in optimizing approaches to the circular economy and bioeconomy. Visit our joint booth with BBEPP and VITO and learn more on how Flanders Investment & Trade can be your one-stop source for assistance with investment/R&D projects and for guidance on the quality products and services Flemish companies have on offer.
