Bioproducts, or bio-based products, are materials, fuels, and chemicals made from renewable resources like agricultural crops, trees, or biologically derived waste. At Environmental Initiative’s next policy forum, we’ll discuss how the bioproducts industry is evolving and how state policy could be structured to achieve the greatest environmental, social, and economic benefits for Minnesota.
