Moving towards the renewables: biotech and more

On this crowded, hungry planet, we need to move on from fossil fuels. Because the fossil fuels are going to run out. We need to get into the renewables. Including the ‘biobased industries’.

My fellow blogger Daniela at the aptly titled Noah Project tells us of a step towards using more renewables in Europe. This is the BioBased Industries Initiative, also known as the Biobased and Renewable Industries for Development and Growth in Europe (BRIDGE). Want more acronyms? ‘The proposal comes as part of an innovation investment package of new Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) under Horizon 2020.’

This sounds quite good to me. We’re invited to sign up for news from the BRIDGE website. I did that, and when I start to see past the management jargon, I’ll let you know what I find.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
