Two Videos Showcase Myriant’s Presence at the 2013 BIO World CongressJune 25th, 2013 | Posted by in Myriant in the News
You’ll have to forgive my lapse in blogging. The last week has been dizzying, distracting, and down-right dastardly. Between the House of Representatives tanking the Farm Bill, and the epic battle between the B’s and Chicago, my head is spinning. But, a bright light amidst all the darkness: Last week was big. On Monday, we announced the successful start of our bio-succinic acid plant in Lake Providence, Louisiana… the first of its kind in the nation. (Yeah, baby!). You can read more about that in this news release. More is also available from this blog post about this significant milestone by our Chairman and CEO, Stephen Gatto. Further, on Tuesday, Steve welcomed attendees of the 2013 BIO World Congress in Montreal to the plenary session on the commercialization of biorefineries. Following his remarks, Myriant also presented this video tribute to the intersection of agriculture and industry entitled, There’s No Saying No to “Know-How.”
Another brigh spot: The BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology is the world’s largest industrial biotechnology event for business leaders, investors, and policy makers in biofuels, biobased products, and renewable chemicals. In this report, entitled Progress, Growth, Milestones and Success: Theme of Day One at World Congress, you can read an account of first day events and activities at BIO World which, by the way, has grown from 300 attendees in its first year to more than 1,200 attendees from 30 different countries now.
