Oops we did it again! We started asking questions, and now we are on to this investigation that is (too?) complex but equally fascinating and important. When following the buzz about BioEconomy, Circular Economy and Sustainable Agriculture, we realised there are dangerous narratives out there, dangerous business models, and a lot of people that are still making decisions in the frame of the “old” economy. In this new series, we zoom into examples of intensive agriculture models in the Nordics and review opportunities and threats in building healthy soils, in particular in regards to carbon sequestration.
Oh! Something worth mentioning: A lot of organic material (bio-waste from municipalities) is going to become widely available on EU markets – following the mandate for municipalities to separate & compost/digest their bio-waste. How are we going to process and use those huge amounts of carbon-rich material? Who is going to pay for the infrastructure? How can we re-organise business models?
We hope you will enjoy the journey.
