BlueCity is an exemplary city for the circular economy where entrepreneurs exchange their residual flows, making waste a valuable raw material. Collaboration, thinking and getting your hands dirty is essential here. Very important to this process is BlueCity Lab.
BlueCity Lab is a biocircular playground for bioneers, located in the old changing rooms of the former tropical swimming pool Tropicana, and consists of a wet lab and a dry lab. Thanks to this unique combination, materials can be grown from the cell in the wet lab and then processed in the dry lab into an end product. For example, a wrapping material made from oyster mushroom mycelium, or a bag of kombucha leather made from bacteria and yeasts, colored with bacterial ink – all developed in BlueCity Lab.
BlueCity Lab supports the transition towards a biocircular economy by facilitating work & labspace for a growing community of bioneers. Bioneers establish examples for a regenerative economy within the planetary boundaries by doing and experimenting.
