Existing bioresource operations

Existing bioresource operations generate by-products and waste that can become feedstocks for bioeconomy projects, creating additional value and promoting a circular bioeconomy.


Feedstocks can include byproducts and underutilized materials from forestry, agriculture, oceans, and municipal solid waste industries.


Bioprocessing facilities use novel techniques to convert local raw materials into a variety of both traditional and new, innovative products.


Bioproducts are sustainable, low-carbon innovative products produced using renewable natural resources from municipal waste streams, agriculture, forestry, and ocean sectors.

Closing the loop

Some bioproducts are compostable and contribute to future growth, and others can be collected and diverted from landfills for reprocessing and reuse.
