Politiques sur la biotechnologie

Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology


Industrial and Environmental Biotechnology are part of the core industrial sectors, which drives the transition of the main body of manufacturing sectors (e.g. IT, pharmaceutical, chemical, automotive, textile, food/feed, agriculture, etc.) towards more sustainable and greener economic and environmental models. The direct application of biotechnology to the environment (e.g. bioremediation, biosensors) is of high relevance for many OECD countries.
