Alternative Biomass Sources
New biomass as an alternative to food crops
A central limitation for the development of bioeconomy beyond food crops is the competition for land resources. Therefore, in addition to contributions to a sustainable intensification of food production, IBG-2 seeks to develop alternative biomass resources that can be used for non-food purposes.This includes specific crops that can grow on marginal or degraded land with little input and algae as a hitherto underdeveloped biomass source with a wide range of potential applications.
