Our mission is to bring together bioeconomy developers throughout the rural areas of Baltic Sea Region to a joint table to solve global and local challenges with bioeconomy innovations. Our aim is to connect bioeconomy innovation networks to share ideas, find partners and work together to create business opportunities in bioeconomy. Together we build knowledge and raise awareness on sustainable and viable bioeconomy business potential in Baltic Sea Region. To enable international co-operation, we create an open international digital platform called Biobord, which will be tested and scaled up via several pilots together with local small and medium sized enterprises during the RDI2CluB-project.

RDI2CluB-project unites authorities, RDI institutes (Research, Development and Innovation institutes) and business development bodies from five regions to a joint quest for boosting smart and sustainable bioeconomy development in the rural areas of Baltic Sea Region. The five regions of the RDI2CLuB partnership are:

  • Central Finland, Finland
  • Inland, Norway
  • Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, Poland
  • Vidzeme, Latvia
  • Estonia

Project process

 

RDI2CluB-project started in October 2017 by mapping joint regional challenges and by looking joint solutions to those. Crosscutting issues between regions are sustainable development, multi-level governance and climate change adaption and mitigation. In order to answer these challenges, there is a need for capacity for innovation. Increased capacity will be reach by understanding each regions’ strengths in the field of bioeconomy, by supporting innovation management and the implementing of the innovations, and by increasing transnational co-operation. The understanding of the bioeconomy strengths of each region was succeeded by benchmarking regional bioeconomy profiles and by creating a joint action plan for developing regional innovation capacities. The support of innovation management and the implementing of that will be reach by creating international open virtual bio business hub (Biobord) and by creating an operational model for the innovation management -aspect. Transnational co-operation between regional innovation systems will be reach via pilots that are carried out with local SME’s (small and medium sizes enterprises). These out puts, except the benchmarking of regional bioeconomy profiles, is validated via piloting during the RDI2CluB-project. More of the project from the About the Project -section.

The technology used by Gelatex to produce a variety of products such as bags, wallets, eco-friendly leather-like textile fabrics etc. is energy efficient, eco-friendly, easily scalable and cheaper than alternative technologies. Gelatex technology uses no toxic chemicals and 78% less water compared to leather production and 28% less energy, being able to save considerably in CO2 emissions. As the material is coloured by adding pigments before creating fibres, there is also no wastewater from the dyeing process, which is a major source of pollution in the textile and leather industry.

Facebook post by RDI2CluB New week and new theme! This week we will present #bioeconomy #innovations under a theme “unlock potential”. Cases come from Estonia, Norway, Latvia and Finland. 25 cases for Bioeconomy Innovation around the #BSR | 13/25 | SEI Tallin, Estonia 🇪🇪 Beauty from nature - by AESTI - Nordic Peat Cosmetics INCREASING BUSINESS competitiveness The Estonian brand AESTI - Nordic Peat Cosmetics uses peat for creating its beauty products for deep cleansing of hair and the scalp. In order to get evidence on peat health benefits, AESTI has joined forces with two Estonian Universities to understand the valuable composites locked in this natural resource. The long product development process resulted in their first natural, organic peat shampoo being released into the market in 2015. The peat products by AESTI include humic acid and minerals that bind harmful substances in the deep layers of the skin and remove toxins from the organism and fulvic acid that balances and prolongs the life of skin cells, thus helping to slow the skin’s aging process. This kind of peat is often considered the best natural medicine for human skin, as it has absorbed minerals and bioactive substances from the bog for over thousands of years.

The process called the HIAS-process, is patented and effectively removes organic substances, phosphorus and nitogen from the water without use of metal based chemical. The outcome of such an approach is significantly reduced OPEX, a reduced CO2 footprint, and nutrients readily available for recovery and processing into fertilizers, as well as the thermal hydrolysis of sludge by using Cambi THP sludge treatment technology, developed in the 90s.

This seems a bit unusual, but in the Świętokrzyskie Region (Poland), they found a professional method of doing this. The Daleszyce State Forest Administration established the Seed-Nursery Gardening Farm in Suków-Papiernia near Kielce. The farm produces in total 3 mln seedlings of pine, beach and oak a year and almost 100 percent of them take root, after being planted in the ground. How is that possible? You can find out in our short video and the catalog “25 cases for Bioeconomy Innovation around the Baltic Sea Region”, where we present many other interesting practices from Finland, Norway, Latvia, Poland and Estonia.
