During AURI’s Biobased Products Event in August, breakout teams formed to brainstorm action items. AURI project director Randy Hilliard, the event’s organizer, has been following up on these items.
The research and technology team has been the most active, Hilliard says. They met in October and November and are working on a definition for “biobased” that event participants and industry can use. Hilliard is working on identifying and compiling biobased manufacturing standards, specifications and certifications, including a summary on the USDA BioPreferred program.
