About the Indicators of the U.S. Biobased Economy Project
The Indicators of the U.S. Biobased Economy project is the first-of-its-kind report documenting indicators of the United States’ biobased economy.
The biobased economy refers to all economic activity derived from scientific and research action focused on understanding how things work at a genetic and molecular level. These activities are then applied to processes to improve products and technologies in sectors including health, energy and agriculture.
The data provided through this project includes analysis of trends in the biobased economy from 2011-16, including trends in agriculture, renewable chemicals, biobased products, energy and government policy.
