The Irish Bioeconomy Foundation is dedicated to the development of Ireland’s bioeconomy through increased awareness of new technologies and the establishment of mutually beneficial business relationships. This will lead to the 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 in partnership with InterTrade Ireland, there are many businesses throughout the country and in Northern Ireland that are stakeholders of the Irish bioeconomy. To date, we have identified almost 600 relevant companies.

However, the number of companies we can assist is much greater. By linking companies that have overlapping value chains, 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.

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 if you want to send us your feedback or any suggestions, please contact us by  email
