VTT's vision of life in the era of a bioeconomy in Finland in 2044
Date:5/15/2014

he broad bean has become a key source of protein. Thanks to advanced processing methods, the valuable and health-promoting ingredients of vegetables are being utilised more efficiently than today. Food products are packaged in bio-based materials. By foaming the substances of wood it is possible to manufacture textiles and materials to replace plastic, among others.

Country living with robots

Helmi's family live in the countryside and earn their living from, highly processed farm products: they sell berry-based deli products to Russians, flux fibres to the textile industry, and wood fibre from forests grown with enzymes for the industrial production of fibre materials. They use bio-based fertilisers on their farm, along with stored solar energy and biogas-produced electricity. The work on the farm is highly automatised and robots take care of routine tasks.

The Andersons live in a zero-energy house and wear clothes made of willow

The Anderson family live in a zero-energy house in the metropolitan area of Helsinki. Every year, they fly to Thailand on a plane using fuel manufactured with microbes. In Thailand, they are used to eating insects. The father is a specialist in prolonging life, and the mother works at the technology hub of Otaniemi developing textile fibres from wood biomass. The family have cut down on eating meat and avoid buying expensive synthetic meat. Their grandmother lives far away and she keeps in touch with her grandchildren with the help of hologram technology. The children are able to stroke her cat from their own home using special touch gloves.

Multitalented Jonas "Brad" Salmi puts new technologies to test

Having studied technology, philosophy, design and marketing, Jonas is always among the first to try out new technologies. He has been involved in starting up businesses all over the world. His business ideas vary from resin-based medications to hologram services. Jonas spends a
