Cross-Cluster: Wood-based Bioeconomy

Last updated on: 13 Jul, 2020

In a joint cross-cluster project, the Forestry and Wood Cluster in Bavaria and the Chemistry Cluster Bavaria addressed the future regional use of hardwood. Taking into account economic, ecological and social framework conditions, potentials, opportunities and obstacles of modern wood chemistry (“wood-based bioeconomy”) in Bavaria were analyzed within the framework of a stakeholder survey. Based on the findings, application fields and action targets for the wood-based bioeconomy in Bavaria were derived in a follow-up project supported by the New Materials Cluster. Through the additional networking of companies and research institutions, a basis for future collaborative projects was created and the use of regional bio-based raw materials was advanced.
