Transitioning To A Bio Economy

Chuck Zimmerman

Steve HalbrookNext week I’ll be attending Farm Foundation’s program titled, “Transition to a Bio Economy: Risk, Infrastructure and Industry Evolution.” They’ve been advertising here on Domestic Fuel and if you haven’t made your reservation then there is certainly still time.

You may not be familiar with Farm Foundation or this series of programs they’ve been hosting on the subject of a Bio Economy. To learn more myself, I spoke with Foundation Vice President, Steve Halbrook, pictured. He says that Farm Foundation is a non profit organization that works in agricultural and rural policy issues. They bring together industry, government and academic leaders to focus on the challenges facing our food system and rural communities.

Steve says this event will have a special focus on biofuels since it affects all facets of ag and rural areas, especially ethanol in the mid west. He says that leaders from several government agencies, including USDA, approached them hoping that the Foundation could help them better understand this issue.
