Oslo, Norway – 15 August 2022 – Circa Group AS has been invited by SIVA (The Industrial Development Corporation of Norway) to take part in a panel discussion on how Norway can succeed with new and existing value chains within forestry and bio processing. The discussion takes place at the Arendalsuka 2022 event, and Circa will be represented by CFO Tone Leivestad.

The panel discussion takes place on Tuesday 16 August at 12:30pm, at Kastellveien 4 in Arendal.

“The opportunity to develop advanced manufacturing opportunities to value add biofeedstocks in Norway is considerable – however real value occurs when opportunities can be leveraged both upstream and downstream, rather than simply stand-alone investments. It is pleasing to see strong interest in rethinking value chains as a key component of bio processing in Norway – further reinforced with the recent publication of the Norwegian government’s new roadmap for sustainable industries.” commented Tony Duncan, CEO of Circa Group AS.
