Digital frukost: How biotechnology contributes to a sustainable solution for the future

Biotechnology has the potential to contribute significantly to a more sustainable future by providing solutions in various fields including energy, agriculture, and material development. Examples include the use of biofuels and hydrogen gas as alternative energy sources, genetically modified crops for sustainable agriculture, and biodegradable plastics as sustainable materials. By utilizing living systems, biotechnology can develop environmentally-friendly and sustainable technologies for a better future.
