Vegware and BBIA host webinar: ‘What is the Bioeconomy and Why Should You Care?’

Vegware, the Edinburgh-based packaging company, in partnership with the Bio-based and Biodegradable Industries Association (BBIA), will be running a webinar entitled, ‘What is the Bioeconomy and Why Should You Care?’ The webinar will explore the fundamentals of the bioeconomy and its significance in today’s world.

The health of the planet we call home is under threat, with earth’s natural systems and boundaries being increasingly breached on a daily basis. At our present consumption rate, by 2030 we will need two planets to meet both our resource needs and absorb society’s waste.

The webinar will take place on Thursday 25th April at 2.30pm, and will feature expert Dr Jen Vanderhoven, Chief Operating Officer at the BBIA, who will provide insights into the bioeconomy’s principles, applications, and benefits. Attendees can expect to gain a comprehensive understanding of:

  • What exactly is the bioeconomy and why is it important?
  • The many benefits of a bioeconomy
  • What are biobased and biodegradable materials?
  • The difference between biodegradable and compostable
  • What opportunities lie ahead in the bioeconomy landscape?

“Without knowing the term bioeconomy, so many of us already value it – seeking nature’s solutions, moving away from finite materials in favour of plant-based and compostable alternatives,” explains Kelly Falconer, Head of Marketing at Vegware. “Through this webinar, we aim to arm participants with the knowledge and insights to embrace bio-based solutions and drive positive change.”

“We believe that education is key to accelerating the transition towards a circular bioeconomy,” added Jen Vanderhoven, BBIA. “By shedding light on the bioeconomy’s significance and opportunities, we hope to inspire individuals and organisations to adopt bio-based practices and products.”

The webinar is free to attend and open to anyone interested in learning more about the bioeconomy, including professionals in foodservice, sustainability, policymaking, and beyond. Attendees can register for the webinar here.
