The Bioeconomy 500 for 2023 – outstanding leaders of the bioeconomy’s development and deployment

February 6, 2023 |

In Florida, The Daily Digest announced the Bioeconomy 500 for 2023, which recognizes individuals for their leadership contributions to the bioeconomy’s development and project deployment. The 500  honors scientists, engineers, policy makers, financiers, project developers, feedstock pioneers, offtakers, advocates and supply-chain and distribution partners.

All Digest subscribers were eligible to nominate and vote for candidates of their choosing.

All honorees on the 2023 Bioeconomy 500 list who attend ABLC can take part in the ceremony honoring and recognizing the Bioeconomy including the presentation of the official medals and ribbons to each honoree.

“The bioeconomy has grown leaps and bounds in the past 10 years,” said Digest editor Jim Lane, “and it is usually told as a story of technologies and Net Zero pledges — but it is individuals who actually translate opportunity into accomplishment, and the Bioeconomy 500 recognizes those individuals who played the leading part. Congratulations to all the winenrs and the friends who nominated, voted and campaigned for them.”
