AlpBioEco – Market potential analysis walnut and herbs

AlpBioEco – Market potential analysis walnut and herbs

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 walnut and herbs value chains.

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.

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.
