Overview

The From Fossil Resources to Biomass - A Business and Economics Perspective  Certificate from EdX is offered in partnership with Wageningen University and Research - WageningenX.

The programme

Explore how to create a sustainable future by moving away from dependence on fossil to biomass resources for the production of food, chemicals, and energy-carriers. The key is using microorganisms and catalysts to create biobased products. In this course, you will focus on the end of the supply chain -  how to market and sell those products within a profitable business model. 

Join this course if you want to advance your career and get the latest academic knowledge on creating a more sustainable biobased future. 

After this course, you will have an improved understanding of other relevant disciplines, and be able to better communicate outside of your own field of expertise in chemistry or technology. You will get a solid foundation of relevant concepts in the biobased economy and biobased products such as:

  • An introduction to biobased sciences
  • Achieving sustainability
  • Consumer behaviour
  • Business
  • Logistics and supply chains
  • Economics and regulations

Programme Structure

What you'll learn:
  • Understand the concept and importance of the biobased economy and the value of biobased products;
  • Assess sustainability issues for a given biobased case;
  • Decide how to implement a consumer point of view during the development of a biobased product;
  • Understand commercial, financial and organizational aspects of running a biobased business;
  • Understand the complexity of logistics of biobased value chains;
