By using biomass, we can keep driving, heat our homes, replace oil-based plastics and fertilize the soil. We need well-trained people to realize this society and economy. This MOOC provides an impetus for this. Various business theories are discussed in the following modules:

  • Introduction
  • Biorefinery
  • Energy
  • Biopolymers
  • Nutrients
  • Algae
  • Natural compounds
  • Durability

The modules consist of video instructions, interesting literature, quizzes and discussions with participants. This MOOC is more suitable for participants who have some knowledge of chemistry and biobased economy, if you do not have that we recommend that you first follow the Think Biobased MOOC.

Study load: +/- 26 hours
