More sustainability in agricultural production

New sources of income for farmers through the bioeconomy

The best soils and a mild climate are ideal conditions for producing high-quality food in the Rhineland. Accordingly, the food and animal feed industries are strongly represented in the region.

Domestic agriculture is facing various structural upheavals. In addition, climate change and the loss of land are forcing us to rethink. The aim is to create new, innovative sources of income - with a view to producing valuable raw materials, adding value to bio-based residues and treating the environment with care.

The people of the region should continue to be supplied with safe, regional food in the future.
