Irish Bioeconomy Foundation   Growing the Irish Bioeconomy Together


Irish Bioeconomy Public Private network

The Irish Bioeconomy Foundation is dedicated to the development of Irelands bioeconomy through increased awareness
of new technologies and establishment of mutually beneficial business relationships. This will lead to sustainable
management of resources across Ireland.

As the number of IBF members increases, more opportunities will become available to assist in efforts to achieving our
goal. As seen in our BioMap, there are many businesses throughout the country that are stakeholders of the Irish
bioeconomy. To date, we have identified almost 300 relevant companies.

However, the full extent of companies we can assist is much larger. By linking companies that have overlapping valuechains,
waste production in these companies can be reduced. This is achieved by creating links with other companies, forming a
circular production chain and capitalising on openings where by-products of one company can be used in alternative
production lines. A prime example of our members working towards a more sustainable future is the GlanBia
AgriChemWhey Project.

This is an ambitious pilot project that is designed to take in waste from milking processes and convert it into biodegradable
plastics and whey protein powder.

We invite you to contact us regarding any potential opportunities or initiatives that you are aware of in Ireland's Bioeconomy. The bioMap is always adapting and updating. At IBF we always encourage feedback from our stakeholders as this results in improved quality of content and expands our channel of information and communication. If you feel that the Biomap needs to add or remove content. Please do not hesitate to contact us by our email
