Fly me to the moon biotech

The Russians were able to send the first Sputnik to orbit the earth fifty years ago. As a result mankind got into rocket science. The next important step might be to move back from oil dependence to a more balanced bio-based economics.

For that we need to learn more about microbes and the little things that matter in this world. Finland can transform its forestry industry into something more profitable with new process developments and through intelligent application of biotechnological solutions to pulp and paper manufacturing.
  • Bio-degradable products
  • Cleaner waters
  • Using the residuals of pulping for added value products
  • Bioengineering
  • Waste water treatment with bioreactors
  • Transforming waste into energy
We just have to think different. We've big opportunities waiting for industrial leaders that are ready to go from energy intensive production to something new with a lesser ecological footprint.
