The World BioEconomy Forum launches world’s first news app for the global circular bioeconomy


The World BioEconomy Forum has launched the world’s first breaking news app for global stakeholders operating in the circular bioeconomy.  The app, which is available for both Android and IOS devices, will alert users to the very latest breaking news and developments taking place in the rapidly growing sector.

The circular bioeconomy is increasingly being seen as pivotal concept for the mitigation of climate change, as well as a way to conserve the planet’s vital raw materials. The concept encourages the use of products and services that utilize renewable resources as their base for production and operation, as well as encouraging recycling and reuse wherever possible.

“We are really excited about our new app,” says Jukka Kantola, Founder of the World BioEconomy Forum. “It will allow us to further develop our platform for information sharing in the circular bioeconomy sector. Already our events – including regular Roundtables, our annual Forum, monthly newsletters and bulletins – are proving very popular with stakeholders operating in the circular bioeconomy sector. The breaking news app adds a further dimension to the important information we are sharing and providing.”

The app will cover all the latest news emerging from the global circular bioeconomy, and importantly will fit into the World BioEconomy Forum’s four thematic pillars of; People, Planet, Policies; Global Leaders and the Financial World; Bioproducts Around Us and Looking to the Future.

The app is available for download from the Apple App Store for IOS and for android devices by searching for World BioEconomy News. Companies, entities and individuals operating in the circular bioeconomy can send their latest news for publishing to news@wcbef.com

The launch of the app comes hot on the heels of another World BioEconomy Forum launch just last week of World Bioproduct Day, a campaign to enhance and increase awareness of the importance of the use bio-based products for the protection of the planet.

The next World BioEconomy Forum will be held in partnership with the state of Pará, and major bioeconomy associations in Brazil, ABAG and Ibá.  The Forum 2021 will be held in the recently developed and renovated riverside venue Estação das Docas in Belém. The city has been recognized as a Creative City of Gastronomy by Unesco.
