Download Bioökonomie für Einsteiger (German Edition) by Stephan Meyer,Joachim Pietzsch,Ulrich Schurr PDF

By Stephan Meyer,Joachim Pietzsch,Ulrich Schurr

Dieses Buch bietet eine aktuelle und intestine lesbare Einführung in die Bioökonomie. Es vermittelt damit grundlegende Kenntnisse zum Verständnis eines Transformationsprozesses, der das 21. Jahrhundert prägen wird und die Integration vieler Disziplinen und Branchen verlangt, die bisher wenig miteinander zu tun hatten. Die Rede ist von dem allmählichen und notwendigen Übergang aus dem Zeitalter fossiler Brennstoffe, das vor rund two hundred Jahren begann, in eine weltweite Wirtschaftsform, die auf nachwachsenden Rohstoffen (und erneuerbaren Energien) basiert.

Dieses Buch begreift die Verwirklichung von Bioökonomie(n) dabei als eine dreifache Herausforderung – eine naturwissenschaftliche, eine ökonomische und eine ökologische. Woher stammt die Biomasse, die wir vorrangig für die Ernährung der wachsenden Weltbevölkerung wie auch für eine zukünftige energetische und stoffliche Nutzung brauchen? Wie wird sie in Bioraffinerien verarbeitet und welche Rolle kommt der Biotechnologie zu? Welche Gesichtspunkte der Innovationsökonomie gilt es zu bedenken, welche betriebswirtschaftlichen Aspekte der Wertschöpfung, Wettbewerbsfähigkeit und Kundenakzeptanz sind von Bedeutung? Welche Bedingungen muss die Bioökonomie erfüllen, um eine nachhaltige Entwicklung der Erde zu ermöglichen? Darf sie überhaupt auf Wachstumsziele setzen oder sollte sie sich nicht besser am perfect der Suffizienz orientieren?

Indem das Buch diese Fragen aus den nicht widerspruchsfreien Perspektiven ausgewiesener Experten behandelt, gibt es einen interdisziplinären Überblick über ein dynamisches Feld von Forschung und Praxis, der mehr Fragen aufwirft als beantwortet und dennoch eine Lücke schließt. Denn bisher gibt es keine verständliche und fachübergreifende Darstellung der Bioökonomie. Das macht die Lektüre dieses Buches zu einem Gewinn nicht nur für Einsteiger, sondern auch für Fachleute, die über die Grenzen ihres eigenen Fachgebietes hinausschauen wollen.
