Growing the Future in North Carolina
The view of the bio-based economy continues to get brighter as agricultural and industrial biotech applications pave the way for production of fuel, fiber, plastics, and other materials from bio-based sources. Over the past ten years, countless agricultural and industrial biotech players have been working to tackle the technical and commercial challenges faced in bringing these products to market. North Carolina is home to exciting research and industrial activities which will accelerate our ability to deliver on the bio-based economy, bringing benefits to our communities through jobs and a cleaner environment.
