Researching for the bioeconomy

Our Vision

A circular, diverse, innovative and sustainable bioeconomy produces healthy food for all, operates on the basis of renewable raw materials and facilitates the realization of One Health for humans, animals and the environment.

Our Mission

The Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy is a pioneer and a driver of bioeconomy research. 
We create the scientific foundation to transform agricultural, food, industrial and energy systems into a comprehensive bio-based circular economy.
We develop and integrate techniques, processes and management strategies, effectively converging technologies to intelligently crosslink highly diverse bioeconomic production systems and to control them in a knowledge-based, adaptive and largely automated manner.
We conduct research in dialogue with society - knowledge-motivated and application-inspired.

Research programs

Diversified crop production

The program area is dedicated to the development of technology and processes for environmentally controlled, highly diversified agroecological production of plant biomass.

to the program
Individualized livestock production

Research focusses on technical solutions to improve animal welfare, barn climate and reduce emissions, as well as on the evaluation of animal husbandry systems.

to the program area
Healthy foods

Research covers the entire spectrum between primary production and consumption of fresh or minimally processed plant and animal products, including fruit, vegetables, cereals, milk, meat and insects.

to the program area
Multifunctional biomaterials

The focus is on the sustainable production of biomass in agriculture, agroforestry systems and paludiculture and the further processing of this biomass into biobased materials.

to the program area
Integrated residue management

The program area bundles research activities on biogas and on carbonized biomass such as biochar and humic substances to be fed back into the production cycle.
