BIO is committed to supporting biobased breakthroughs at all stages of development and technology developers of all types and sizes. From public education campaigns to pushing for regulations that keep pace with innovation, we take on the policy challenges and activism that can threaten innovations in food and on the farm, biobased manufacturing, and green energy breakthroughs.
