Organic waste and other residual materials from bio-based industries and households are of increasing value in today’s economy. Substances that have long represented a cost to the economy are now becoming a valuable resource. Exploiting the full potential of these resources requires increased innovation and systemic change as well as better regulation and governance – or, in other words, a transition to a sustainable bioeconomy.
