AlpBioEco – Market potential analysis apples

AlpBioEco – Market potential analysis apples

The Interreg Alpine Space project Valorisation of innovative bio-economical potentials along bio-based food & botanical extract value chains in the Alpine Space (in short: AlpBioEco) aims to foster the sustainability of the local economy in the Alpine Space by the valorisation of innovative bioeconomical potentials, focusing on bio-based food and botanical extract value chains. Especially apple pomace, walnut press cakes and herbal extract by-products are valuable leftovers from for new bioeconomic applications. AlpBioEco contributes to the framework conditions for innovation, resulting in eco-innovative business ideas and concepts for small and medium-sized enterprises in the Alpine region.

This AlpBioEco  report gives a complete and detailed market potential analyses of the apples value chain.

AlpBioEco contributes to the framework conditions for innovation, resulting in eco-innovative business ideas and concepts for small and medium-sized enterprises in the Alpine region.

The AlpBioEco report Results and Replicable Roadmap gives an initial overview over the examined three value chains of apples, walnuts and herbs/hay. It entails a “replicable” roadmap for the analysis of bio-based value chains that can shall be a standardised guide to analyse value chains with bioeconomic aspects and potentials in regions like the Alpine Space.

The video shows what are doing in the Research & Innovation project AlpBioEco. AlpBioEco is an interdisciplinary project group with 13 partnering institutions from Slovenia, Italy, Austria, France and Germany. Together they are looking for new ways to reate economic value from vegetable products – called bioeconomy. For this purpose, the value chains of walnuts, apples and herbs are examined in terms of their bioeconomic potential. Based on market studies, laboratory analyses and the exchange of knowledge between the various players involved in the project, the project develops new practical eco-innovative business models. These concepts will be tested and further developed through pilot studies in selected Alpine regions.

Bioeconomy means using natural substances for new and alternative products. The most important  oals are to replace fossil resources with renewable materials and to find applications for by-products and waste materials. Synergies of technology, ecology and sustainability are harnessed to create new opportunities and prospects for economic activities. By targeting an economic cycle, the concept of bioeconomy comprises raw material sources of agriculture, forestry, water management and waste (food and feed, materials, energy). The transition from a fossil to a bio-based economy reduces society‘s dependency on fossil fuels and improves sustainability. New business models and cross-industrial innovations are the basis for such transitions. With its raw material sources and diverse economy, the Alpine region has good starting conditions. At this point, the AlpBioEco project comes into place to foster development towards bioeconomy by investigating the valorisation of innovative potentials along bio-based food and botanical extract value chains. In the first work package, AlpBioEco examines the biobased potential of the three value chains apples, walnuts and herbs.

ALPBIOECO – EU Interreg project focused on the potentials of bioeconomy in value chains in the Alpine space

AlpBioEco is an EU project co-financed through the Interreg Alpine Space Programm and by the “Federal Transnational Cooperation Programme“ of the German Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community. The 13 project partners from 5 Alpine countries work together for an innovative sustainable development in the Alpine space. We focus on the potential of bioeconomy in the value chains of herbal foods and essences. In four working packages, we investigate current value chains for apples, walnuts and herbs, develop new products as well as new business models which will be tested in pilot studies. AlpBioEco contributes to the framework of conditions for innovation, resulting in eco-innovative business ideas and concepts for small and medium-sized enterprises in the Alpine region.
The European Union bioeconomy strategy addresses the production of renewable biological resources and their conversion into vital products. Expanding bioeconomy, particularly in rural areas, represents a major development potential. In the Alpine regions, this potential can however only be harnessed if the actors and municipalities cooperate closely and pursue shared objectives. The overall objective of AlpBioEco is to foster the sustainability of the local economy in the Alpine Space by the valorisation of innovative bioeconomical potentials. In our project we focus on bio-based food and botanical extract value chains.
