Public description of the goals at the beginning of the project
Sustainable bio- and circular economy calls for alternatives for the one-sided production and consumption culture based on mass markets. The aim of the Bio-based Dyes and Pigments for Colour Palette (BioColour) project is to develop new methods of biocolourant production, characterization and application, which enable the buildup of novel processes leading to a variety of sustainable items. Also, the BioColour project aspires to establish the cultural, social and ethical aspects associated with producing and consuming biocolourants and enhance wider adaption of sustainability in businesses and consumer lifestyles. BioColour project helps generating new high-class sustainable biocolour business and advancing existing business opportunities in Finland.
