European Call for more LCA on forest based circular economy


In the “Forest-based bioeconomy – benefits for climate, jobs and growth” event held in Brussels last November, the University of Eastern Finland (UEF) and LUKE Natural Resources Institute Finland called for an increased role and identification of research needs of forest-based circular bioeconomy to address climate change.

They also cited the importance of substitution of fossil-based materials, multiple use of forests and governance of bioresources.
