Leidos and Wester Trade Resources are sponsoring a webinar on Thursday, July 23 at 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm EST regarding the USDA 9003 Biorefinery, Renewable Chemical, and Biobased Product Manufacturing Assistance Program.

The USDA’s Section 9003 Program is designed  to build the bridge for “first of a kind” comercialization for renewable chemical and biobased product manufacturing.
