Welcome to Lleida Biotech, a Bio-products Industry Cluster

The region of Lleida is Catalonia’s main inland economic area and the one which possesses the most highly developed agro-industial sector in Catalonia, thanks to the work of extremely qualified professionals, who have studied in the most prestigious local and international universities and technological centres, and who have thus become leading experts in all the agricultural and industrial processes and technologies.

This noteworthy knowledge and economic potential, together with the new technological infrastructures, have led to the creation of a new economic sector, the bio-products industries, which convert biomass (non-food crops, forest biomass, urban vegetal waste, etc.), by means of industrial and biotechnological processes, into bio-products like bio-plastics, bio-paints, bio-energy, bio-fuel and bio-construction materials, etc.

Lleida Biotech is the leading name and trade mark used by the region to promote, within its sphere of influence, the bio-product industries and to convert Lleida into a region determined to promote eco-innovation.
