The ag bioeconomy encompasses a broad range of innovative processes, technologies and products that can benefit our communities, our security and the environment. It is using renewable agricultural commodities as inputs to make chemicals, materials and products, providing circular solutions and supply chain resiliency. It also includes the people that grow agricultural feedstocks, businesses that manufacture biobased inputs and products, and the consumers who purchase them.
By investing in the U.S. bioeconomy, we can tap the talent and resources of American agriculture to produce new, more sustainable inputs and products. We can position our country’s agricultural producers to lead the shift to an ag-based circular economy and serve as a solutions provider in addressing economic and environmental challenges domestically and globally.
