Biomass can contribute to solving some pressing societal questions, like how to solve the loss of biodiversity, the need for a different water and soil management for preventing CO2 emissions from peatlands and agricultural soil, and how to clean surface and sky water for our needs.
Co-creating the valorization pyramids
Together with her partners, BlueCity Lab organizes four meetups about four fiber rich organisms, called Fiber Club. In these meetups, we co-create the valorization pyramid for this organism with the experts in and around the Netherlands in this field. Our focus lies on the fiber rich biomass that is not suitable for food or feedstock, yet we do not overlook. Unlocking existing knowledge about optimization of the use of materials and matter from the plants next to extracting fibers and sharing this knowledge with a wider group is our aim.
Fiber Club – online meetup for fiber professionals (to be)
This meetup is organized for experts and starters who work or want to work on valorization of fibers and are looking for knowledge, network and inspiration. We hope to lower the threshold for starters in this field and to support experts that have been working on these topics for years.
