On behalf of the German Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy, this project develops and analyzes indicators that are suitable for describing the bioeconomy and assessing its economic and economic-ecological effects. In addition, it suggests, tests, and validates methodologies and guidelines for data collection, calculation, and analysis of indicators. It thereby contributes to the development of a scientific basis for a long-term monitoring of the bioeconomy, in close collaboration with two further partnering projects dealing with biomass flows and modelling of the bioeconomy. The transformation towards a bioeconomy, with its potentials and barriers or trade-offs, will become visible and trackable through the monitoring and will support decision-makers in drawing conclusions. ATB is developing novel approaches and methods that support economic-ecological assessment of the bioeconomy. Apart from identifying those parts of the economy that can be assigned to the bioeconomy, ATB discusses and develops indicators that are specific to the bioeconomy, such as indicators for cascade utilization and economic-ecological impacts. The methods and indicators are tested and validated in a pilot study within the plastics industry. The project is coordinated by ifo Institute and carried out in cooperation with nova-Institute and the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research ISI.
