Netherlands can profit from sustainable biotechnology

5/15/2012

The Netherlands have missed big opportunities in wind- and solar energy. Will the same happen to opportunities in biotechnology?

It certainly is possible to develop sustainable technology in the Netherlands and export it. There definitely is enough technological knowledge to generate energy and resources out of organic materials. For example, WUR is developing ways to turn sugar beets into bio-ethanol, and corn into biogas. Additionally, there are techniques to transfer biodegradable waste into biogas.
