WEI is hosting a series of workshops around the state this fall and winter that will help lay the groundwork for the development and growth of a circular, bio-based economy in Wisconsin. Funded by a $125,000 grant from the Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2), the three workshops will bring together and facilitate collaboration between the diverse stakeholders in the circular bioeconomy ecosystem, in which renewable and waste resources are used as raw materials, substituting biomass-based and recycled carbon for fossil carbon in energy and products.

Each of the all-day workshops will cover one major area of the bioeconomy, with options to participate in-person and virtually. There is no cost to attend the all-day workshops and breakfast and lunch will be provided. Registration is required and space may be limited.
