Biofuture hopes in the global spotlight
QUEENSLAND’S leadership of Australia’s bioindustrial revolution was thrust into the spotlight at a global summit in Germany.
Minister for State Development Cameron Dick reinforced the state’s commitment to the biosector at the Global Bioeconomy Summit 2018 in Berlin.
During the conference, Mr Dick met with industry and government leaders to discuss investment opportunities between Queensland and Germany.
“Taking part in this global summit offers the chance to engage directly with major players in the international bioindustrial sector and promote Queensland’s success and future plans,” he said.
“Queensland’s mix of natural resources, skilled workforces, world-class research and development and supporting supply chain industries make it a premium location for the biofutures industry. Queensland has a range of low-value feedstocks and wastes available to produce high-value bioproducts across the biofuels, biochemicals and bioplastics sectors and a technologically advanced agricultural sector.”
