From ball pen to Porsche: all organically based - Renewable raw materials form the basis for protecting the climate and resources too

What do a ball pen and a Porsche have in common? Visitors to the International Green Week Berlin 2018 will find the answer to this question in Hall 4.2. From 19 to 28 January the focus will be on the raw materials which are grown in our fields and are used to make these two products. The magic words are ‘Renewable Raw Materials’. They form the basis for a new business form, referred to as the bio-economy, which represents climate protection as well as the protection of resources. This show provides an opportunity to feel these materials, when they pick up an organically based ball pen or run their hand over the bodywork of an organically based Porsche.

These are just some of the astonishing products to be seen in the ‘Renewable Raw Materials’ show. Visitors can also take part in a quiz, with a chance to win a compact 3D printer that processes organically based plastics. In collaboration with research establishments, companies and associations, the renewables agency Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe e. V. (FNR) is providing insights into a future when everyday products, cars and energy will no longer be produced from crude oil but from renewable raw materials.
