A common pathway towards a sustainable future

By 2050, it is estimated that the Earth’s population will top 9 billion. This growing population will undeniably stress our food systems, natural resources, and ecosystems and the world regions are all presenting their own different development strategies accordingly. The whole food industry sector, including vegetables and meat production sector, food processing industries, citizens’ food consumption, is responsible for the generation of an impressive amount of organic solid and liquid waste, of which more than half is wasted.

According to estimations, Europe, China and USA produce alone more than 400 million tons of organic waste, spending around 300 billion $ for this material disposal and transportation infrastructures.
  • How do we secure a sufficient supply of energy for the future? How can we handle and treat our waste – and in particular the biowaste – so that more is recycled?
  • How can we develop technologies where we can use biomaterials in new areas, not least those that today are based on oil?
  • How scientific innovations can be efficiently exploited?
  • What are the needs of the cutting edge industries leading the way with scaling up of technologies?
  • In which ways different renewable sectors can integrate to provide optimum sustainable solutions for replacing fossil Energy?
These are just some of the questions that will be addressed during IBSCE by global investors decision makers from research, finance and politics.
