The concept of the bio-economy has gained political and economic importance worldwide in recent years. Bio-economy describes the path from an economy based on fossil and mineral raw materials to an economic form that uses biological resources, processes and systems. As one of the world’s most important renewable resources, wood has a central role to play in this process. It must be noted here, Green Material Processing has been chosen as one of the focus topics for LIGNA 2021. LIGNA organisers are highlighting the economic and technological innovations arising from the new processing and finishing options for timber as a key renewable resource.
