Economics or ecology, the dilemma.

Taking care of the economy is a fundamental basis for preserving the modern way of life. However, it is true that the elements that sustain the economy are contrary to the needs of the planet as a living entity. This is mainly because production systems are highly polluting, the proliferation of waste far exceeds the earth's capacity to absorb its impact, and the strongly capitalist organization of the economy causes us to buy, discard and repurchase, thus entering a vicious circle from which it is very difficult to escape without endangering the economy or the ecology. They begin to seem irreconcilable concepts to many.

However, there are many advances, studies and discoveries that are aimed at achieving an ideal balance that can stop the destruction of the planet without losing strength at the economic level and without limiting in the least the quality of life of the first world. Is the bioeconomy the solution? The so-called bioeconomy is presented as the perfect solution to keep the pace of increasing social and economic prosperity within acceptable limits or even positive for the planet Earth. This concept refers to economic activity directly derived from the generation of biological and renewable resources. At the same time, the resources become useful again after a first use thanks to their effective conversion.

In other words, waste is not simply discarded but converted into other elements for its new use. The key to this large-scale recycling lies in saving raw materials and at the same time disposing of waste in a sustainable manner. The key to this large-scale recycling lies in saving raw materials and, at the same time, disposing of waste in a sustainable manner. Similarly, a source of large-scale generation of biological products that supply various sectors efficiently is being created.

It is not easy, but it is possible. This is in addition to ecological methods of energy production, as well as the conversion of existing industries to achieve a much more sustainable activity. The great difficulty in achieving all this is the initial effort required for large, established companies, the lack of commitment on the part of institutions and governments, as well as the lack of awareness at a global level with particular impact on the most powerful sectors of the economy.However, little by little, we are seeing an increase in interest in this sense thanks to the constant demonstration that these are methods with a great future projection that result in economic savings, good functioning, a clean image and growth in wealth.there are many countries that are showing a growing interest in the bioeconomy as a real possibility for the future and are beginning to take forceful steps in this direction, opening up numerous possibilities for the field of research, technology, development and sustainable industry.
