In March 2023, President Biden issued 10 Bold Goals for the U.S. Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing industries, expanding on his Executive Order issued September 12, 2022 on Advancing Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Innovation for a Sustainable, Safe, and Secure American Bioeconomy. While the 2022 Executive Order emphasized increasing market opportunities for biobased products, these bold goals provide key objectives for the U.S. bioeconomy.
The 2023 update provides specific goals to be achieved through a range of timelines in (1) transportation and stationary fuels, (2) chemicals and materials, (3) climate-focused agricultural systems and plants, and (4) carbon dioxide (CO₂) removal.
These biomanufacturing and biotechnology goals will face research and development challenges and require innovations to optimize various processes. Producing platform chemicals and final products with the greatest potential to reduce GHG emissions as well as generating new bio-based compounds for SAF production are among the top priorities for commercial success.
As biobased products and biofuel industries evolve, third-party laboratory testing using ASTM D6866 measurements allow manufacturers to validate biobased or biogenic carbon content. ISO 17025-accredited lab Beta Analytic offers biobased/biogenic testing with results available in 7 business days or less. Contact Beta for more information.
