“Before COVID-19 forced us to stop, changes towards implementing sustainable practices were perceived as too disruptive and not compatible with the short-term vision of sustained economic growth. The current pandemic crisis has opened a debate about what is most important to preserve in the long-term.”
Welcome to Bio Market Insights Quarterly Issue #18 your dedicated global guide to the latest news, developments, products and personalities driving the production of bio-based and sustainable chemicals, materials and products and the brands that purchase, use and sell them. We also feature the growing role of the circular economy, and the innovations and benefits that synthetic biology is delivering to the emerging bio-economy.
The quote above is from our opening feature, an opinion piece on industrial biotech in the post COVID-19 world. Whilst this is no ‘Coronavirus Special’, the impact of the pandemic does permeate our edition, and looking beyond the enormous human cost, and the forthcoming financial challenges, we do see opportunities in a world that is looking to do things differently from now on.
