Landpack founder appointed to the Bavarian Bioeconomy Expert Council

Alling, Novem­ber 23, 2020 – Today, Land­pack GmbH foun­der Patri­cia Eschenlohr has been appoin­ted as a new mem­ber of the Bava­ri­an Bio­eco­no­my Expert Coun­cil. The Coun­cil of Experts is com­po­sed of twel­ve spe­cia­lists from busi­ness and sci­ence who advi­se the Bava­ri­an Sta­te Minis­try of Eco­no­mic Affairs, Regio­nal Deve­lo­p­ment and Ener­gy on the fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment of the bio­eco­no­my. As an inde­pen­dent body, the Coun­cil has play­ed a key role in the deve­lo­p­ment of the Bava­ri­an bio­eco­no­my stra­te­gy “Future.Bioeconomy.Bavaria”, which was pre­sen­ted today at a press con­fe­rence by Bavaria’s Minis­ter of Eco­no­mic Affairs, Hubert Aiwanger.

The Bava­ri­an bio­eco­no­my stra­te­gy con­sists of a packa­ge of fif­ty mea­su­res with the over­ar­ching goal of redu­cing the con­sump­ti­on of fos­sil raw mate­ri­als, deve­lo­ping sus­tainab­le bio­ba­sed tech­no­lo­gies, pro­ces­ses and pro­ducts, and estab­li­shing a func­tio­n­ing cir­cu­lar eco­no­my in as many indus­tri­al sec­tors as pos­si­ble. Eco­no­mics Minis­ter Aiwan­ger: “By deve­lo­ping new and alter­na­ti­ve mate­ri­als, we are streng­t­he­ning our com­pe­ti­ti­ve­ness inter­na­tio­nal­ly and ope­ning up new mar­kets. We want to beco­me a lea­ding loca­ti­on for sus­tainab­le pro­ducts and pro­duc­tion methods and thus a model for other world regi­ons. Bio­eco­no­my must be thought of for the ent­i­re lifecycle.”

Land­pack is gene­ral­ly regar­ded as a show­ca­se for inno­va­ti­ve cir­cu­lar eco­no­my. By using the local, agri­cul­tu­ral resi­du­al mate­ri­al straw, an extre­me­ly ener­gy-saving pro­ces­sing with rene­wa­ble ener­gies and the dis­po­sal via the domestic orga­nic was­te, the raw mate­ri­al is retur­ned to the natu­ral cycle, petro­le­um is sub­sti­tu­ted, and signi­fi­cant CO2 is saved. “Land­pack exem­pli­fies the hid­den poten­ti­al in local­ly avail­ab­le vege­ta­ble raw mate­ri­als and how with inno­va­ti­ve spi­rit many petro­le­um pro­ducts can alrea­dy be sub­sti­tu­ted, ther­eby crea­ting local jobs and streng­t­he­ning domestic agri­cul­tu­re,” says Patri­cia Eschenlohr, foun­der and advi­so­ry board mem­ber of Land­pack GmbH.

At today’s press con­fe­rence at the Bava­ri­an Sta­te Minis­try of Eco­no­mic Affairs, Regio­nal Deve­lo­p­ment and Ener­gy, Patri­cia Eschenlohr empha­si­zed: “The top prio­ri­ty of any inno­va­ti­on must be CO2 reduc­tion. A bio-based tech­no­lo­gy is only sus­tainab­le if it also saves CO2 in the pro­duc­tion pro­cess. The pro­blem is well known. Now it requi­res ambi­tious legis­la­ti­on and action.”

“I am very plea­sed to accom­pa­ny the imple­men­ta­ti­on of the bio­eco­no­my stra­te­gy in Bava­ria wit­hin the frame­work of the Coun­cil of Experts and par­ti­ci­pa­te in its fur­ther deve­lo­p­ment,” Patri­cia Eschenlohr con­ti­nued. “With acti­ve inno­va­ti­on scou­ting in the field of bio­eco­no­my as well as start-up finan­cing and risk assump­ti­on in the deve­lo­p­ment of demons­tra­ti­on plants, Bava­ria can take on a pionee­ring role and beco­me Europe’s most attrac­ti­ve loca­ti­on for bio­eco­no­my startups.”
