October 11, 2016 |

In Washington, a coalition of major agricultural groups launched a grassroots campaign to urge the Environmental Protection Agency to remove its regulatory roadblock to development of the emerging bioeconomy. The Biogenic CO2 Coalition is a working group of leading trade associations and companies that support American farmers and the national “bioeconomy” that a new USDA economic analysis estimates to be $393 billion, provides 4.2 million American jobs, and is the leading source of domestic renewable energy.
