The Agency for Renewable Resources (FNR) was founded in 1993 as a government initiative intended to support research and development projects in the area of renewable resources. As a project managing organisation, the FNR answers to the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL).
PROMOTION OF RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
The FNR’s main task is to support applied research and development in the field of sustainable development and use of renewable resources. It is our goal to develop promising processes and products to make them ready for the market. The FNR supports around 800 projects each year.
INFORMATION AND PUBLIC RELATIONS
The FNR is the first point of contact for all matters concerning renewable resources. Alongside specialist information, explanations and advice also play an important role. Regular events and industry and consumer expos round off the spectrum of activities.
EU AND INTERNATIONAL ACTIVITIES
As well as taking part in EU funded projects, the FNR is also involved in European and international committees and working groups that develop strategies for the sustainable use of biomass using innovative and efficient technologies.
