On March 5th, 2015, the UK Government has published a report detailing the enormous opportunities resulting from growing the bioeconomy. The report ‘Building a high value bioeconomy: Opportunities from Waste’ presents the basis for the growth of the bioeconomy in the UK and the enabling actions required to realise the opportunity.

The report was produced by a cross-Whitehall and public sector working group comprised of Government Departments (DECC, Defra, BIS and DCLG), the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), WRAP and Bio Base NWE partner NNFCC.

As a member of the working group behind the report, NNFCC is delighted that Government departments have come together to present an integrated approach to the bioeconomy.
