BiobasedWorld at ACHEMA 2015 was the place where bioeconomy became visible and tangible. In the foyer of hall 4.1 visitors experienced how bioeconomy has already made itself at home in our homes. Strolling along the Via Mobile and running ones fingers through wheat, corn and castor-oil plants the green thread of bioeconomy could be followed. You could see what the elephant grass miscanthus actually looks like and live displays showed what goes into biorefineries. In the Galleria visitors could peek into the Bioeconomy Window of the German resarch ministry and have a look at the state of research and get a glimpse of what could come out of biorefineries in the future.
Just as bioeconomy is present everywhere in your daily life it could be found in every exhibition group at ACHEMA. Green floor tiles helped visitors navigate through the halls and mark those exhibitors who are involved in the bioeconomy. An extensive list of exhibitors is available here.
More than 90 presentations within the extensive congress program were dedicated to BiobasedWorld and highlighted the technical, economic and political aspects.
