BDC Fall, 2016 Symposium (Sept. 27-28, Washington DC)

A successful BDC Fall Symposium was held in Washington DC on September 27-28, 2016.  A combination of Government Agency Directors and Sr. Advisors were joined by outstanding leaders in the bio-industry to discuss the advancement of the bio-industry.  Presentations and Pictures will be posted to the website in the next few days.

We were honored to have Wisconsin Senator Mark Pocan provide our opening keynote.  Mark is a member of both the Paper Caucus and the Biofuels Caucus.

Steve Davies, Director of Public Affairs for Natureworks provided the after dinner renewable product success story.  What began in 1989 as a Cargill research project became the independent company of today.  Natureworks now produces numerous high value products from corn and is progressing into cellulosic feedstocks.  An award for outstanding achievement was presented to Natureworks at the Fall Symposium in Washington DC.  Click on the link below to view the press release.
