The blog is introducing this year a video pick of the week and we’ll start with one from the USDA BioPreferred Program.
Last month, Deputy Program Manager for the USDA BioPreferred Program Kate Lewis led a virtual conversation via the Google Hangout with some of the industry standouts working with USDA to create new markets for biobased products such as Verdezyne, Biosynthetic Technologies, Seventh Generation, ISSA (The Worldwide Cleaning Association), and OBIC (The Ohio BioProducts Innovation Center).
The participants spoke about the importance of a comprehensive Food, Farm and Jobs Bill to the biobased economy, and also held a Q&A session with listeners all over the world.
Here is a recap video of the hangout. Lewis also had a summary of the event on the USDA blog. There were some technical sound challenges here and there but overall, the video was very informative. Enjoy!
