The circular bioeconomy offers the possibility of exploiting new forest products to replace products derived from non-renewable raw materials and fossil fuels. One example is building with the use of cutting-edge products like cross-laminated timber (CLT). The exceptional mechanical qualities of CLT make it possible to develop a new market for locally grown and processed wood,  reducing significantly the carbon footprint of building construction and improving the energy efficiency of buildings.

Farm and forest biofuels, as well as biorefinery products made for the food, farm, and chemical industries, are also linked to the circular bioeconomy. Moreover, scientific technical innovation also enhances the supply of forest products through the farming of products collected from the wild, such as truffles, or aromatic and medicinal plants.
