Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
Innovation is anchored in acib’s DNA and is at the heart of our motto: “Innovation inspired by nature”. In order to not only support but also encourage innovation and inspire the best minds to think innovatively, acib has established an Open Innovation platform: The goal of this OI approach is to generate new ideas, products, services or business models. To this end, acib uses ideas from inside and outside the company to collect new impulses, ideas and business models and transform them into concrete, new services, products or even start-ups.
Sustainable cities and communities
Responsible consumption and production
Climate change is advancing, and at the same time the world’s population is growing and with it food production. By 2050, the demand for high-quality proteins will double. That’s why acib has developed alternative, sustainable sources of food production that also make an important contribution to climate protection. For example, a new, biotechnological carbon capture process converts the harmful greenhouse gas CO2 into high-quality protein without polluting oceans and land areas. Another application of the technology could be the production of environmentally friendly bioplastics.
Another method that could counteract climate change and ensure food for the world’s population in the future is the development of alternative meat produced in a bioreactor in a climate-friendly and animal-free way. In vitro meat could be an ethical alternative in the future.
