Focus area

Circular Bio-Economy

The world needs a new way of using the limited resources of our planet. From localised food supply chains and renewable energy sources to organic non-toxic materials, the transition to a circular and bio-based economy is key to improve and safeguard living standards. As well as to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement.

Sweden is a global innovation leader, with a strong focus on sustainability and cleantech. India’s decentralised value chains such as in material recycling and power generation, is uniquely positioned to drive frugal innovation within the cleantech and reprocessing space. Solutions piloted in India, which is the fastest growing large economy and one of the most densely populated countries in the world, have potential to create solutions with measurable impact which are scalable across the globe. 

Yet common challenges remain, these include phasing out fossil fuels from the transport- and power sector, replacing conventional products with organic materials as well as implementing best-in-class conservation and treatment of the world most crucial resource, water.  Thus, projects within this focus area aim to:

  • Improve efficient resource utilisation
  • Reduce CO2 footprints
  • Monetise waste and bi-products
  • Ensure water conservation and treatment
  • Reduce demand of fossil carbons

UNNATI bridges Indian and Swedish Innovators with the aim of forming strategic partnerships and market oriented R&D consortia within the field of Circular Bio-Economy. UNNATI is building a pipeline of concrete projects bringing innovative solutions to the market that improve quality of life and reduce environmental impact.
