The Netherlands - Country of the Year 2022

At an industrial, institutional, research, capacity building, visionary and collaborative level, the Netherlands is exemplary as a country in its approach and achievements across the bioenergy and bioeconomy fields.

30+ innovating front runners will be in Nantes, presenting their accomplishments and vision across the conferences and will also be looking forward to welcome you onto the three Netherlands lounges dedicated to biomass, biogas and the bioeconomy.

This is a unique opportunity to catch up with some of the big names of tomorrow who are pioneering and pushing forward the biotransition.

A word from the Ambassador of the Netherlands

Dear Visitors, dear Participants,

One of the greatest challenges of our time is to provide reliable, affordable and renewable energy solutions for all. Besides increasing demand for energy, we also have to prepare for a changing global climate and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Bioenergy and biomass can play a vital role in the energy transition and will help us to meet the growing demand for energy. This requires a great deal of research and pioneering work. Work that is already happening on a large scale in my country, the Netherlands.

The Netherlands has been successful in the development and implementation of a biobased economy. We owe this to our high-tech agriculture and horticulture sectors, our innovative multinationals and a vibrant ecosystem of start-ups and research institutes focusing on biobased products and processes. This experience and knowledge, and our products and services make the Dutch bioenergy sector an ideal partner for France in the transition to a biobased economy.

France has set the ambitious goal to reach carbon neutrality by 2050. The strong potential of biogas and biomethane in France as a green energy source will contribute to achieve this target. The market is well developed and growing at a steady pace. It is estimated that around 1,200 methane injection projects will be completed by 2023.

Both countries have high ambitions, complementary knowledge and technologies. Both are constantly raising the bar.

It is thus a great honor for the Netherlands to be present at Bio360 Expo as “country of the year”. We are looking forward to the exchanges and to intensify our cooperation with French and other international partners and wish you all a successful event.

Yours sincerely,

Pieter de Gooijer
