About IBF

Our mission is to promote the conversion of Ireland’s natural land & sea resources to high value products for the development of a sustainable bioeconomy that is globally competitive and creates local development.

We will do this by helping our members: facilitating relations among innovative agribusiness, forestry, marine, energy and bioeconomy champions; generating synergies between different sustainable initiatives; enabling innovative projects to reach their next level; creating an integrated ecosystem of converging assets and ambitions.

IBF is headquartered on the National Bioeconomy campus in Lisheen, Co. Tipperary (just 8 miles from Thurles). This 455-hectare property is a converted mining site and boasts an €80m infrastructure including roads, electrical substation, wind turbines, weigh bridges, water, buildings.
