In Florida, the Digest debuts online today episode #1 of its first original series —  the one-to-one interview program Faces. It’s here.

Episode #1 features Industrial Microbes Chief Scientific Officer Noah Helman. Verdezyne CEO Bill Radany will be featured in episode #2, which will be released the week of February 2nd.

Future episodes of Faces

We’ve taped quite a few interviews for upcoming episodes, including:

Calysta CEO Alan Shaw, Sapphire Energy CEO Jamie Levine, Cellana CEO Martin Sabarsky, LanzaTech CEO Jennifer Holmgren, ABFA president Mike McAdams, BIO EVP Brent Erickson, ABO executive director Matt Carr, Oberon Fuels president Rebecca Boudreaux, ZeaChem VP Joe Regnery, Aemetis CEO Eric McAfee, Mango Materials CEO Molly Morse, Algenol CEO Paul Woods, Liquid Light CEO Kyle Teamey, and Rivertop Renewables CEO Mike Knauf.

Streaming or downloading episodes

Faces is available free for download or streaming at this time, and will initially be distributed via biofuelsdigest.com and our You Tube channel. We’ll be adding distribution via a dedicated online streaming and downloading site, biochannel.tv, later in the spring. We’ll also be announcing additional distribution deals later in the year.

More about BioChannel.TV and Faces

In recent months and years, we’ve noticed that online readers are increasingly becoming online viewers — as bandwidth improves, it’s possible to effectively distribute video-based programming via the internet. At the same time, readers continue to demonstrate, via participating in webinars and conferences, that there’s a strong interest in a more entertaining, more robust kind of coverage than a written news item can provide — with fun visuals, original music, and thoughtful guests. Hence BioChannel.TV.

Readers are busy and we are a “Digest” based in brevity after all, so individual episodes are short — typical run time will be 5-8 minutes each. We’ll introduce viewers to business leaders, technologists, financiers, policy leaders in the advanced bioeconomy, and background on their respective organizations.

Two more programs to debut this year

Later in the year, we’ll debut two more original series: “Places”, a documentary-style program that takes you inside the labs and project sites of the Advanced Bioeconomy, around the globe; and “Voices”, in which two regular casts will discuss the technologies, strategies, companies, people and news in the Advanced Bioeconomy to sort out “what is hype, what is real” in a discussion format where viewers also come to enjoy the interactions between the regular casts members and their guests.

We’ll be filming quite a lot of content at ABLC in Washington DC in March (and also at ABLC Next in San Francisco in the fall) — including the first episodes of Voices as well as interviews for Faces.
