Mapping future for bioindustrial symbioses
On November 30 partner meeting of the Interreg Baltic Sea region programme project “Blue Green Bio Lab” was held in Jelgava, Latvia. The next steps to be taken were discussed in order to create cooperation for sustainable use of natural resources and to improve the state of the environment in the states around the Baltic Sea.
These two principles – to improve the environment in water basins and to create viable businesses – are the basis of bio-industrial cooperation and symbioses. The input resource in the symbiosis is the naturally occurring biomass of aquatic or terrestrial origin that initiates the product value chain.
The project partners from the municipalities of Skive (Denmark) and Lysekil (Sweden), the Zemgale Planning Region and Latvian Institute of Aquatic Ecology will be working creating a set of solutions that would promote industrial symbiosis in the municipalities of the Baltic Sea Region countries.
