BioTexFuture is one of four innovation programs supported by the (German) Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of the "Nationalen Forschungsstrategie BioÖkonomie 2030" through the funding measure "Innovationsräume Bioökonomie ". BioTexFuture's vision is to convert the textile value chain from petroleum-based to bio-based. Based on this vision, there are three core objectives: 1.BioTexFuture is developing a bio-based raw material basis for plastics that are holistically sustainable (economically, ecologically, socially). 2.BioTexFuture maps the application in the textile industry from the biopolymer to the manufacture of the complete textile. 3.BioTexFuture addresses the overall societal transformation to a bioeconomy from a social and economic perspective.
