The U. S. Grains Council and Illinois Corn Growers hosted a group of ag journalists from other countries this past week or so. Last night they were treated to an event here at BIO 2006 which took place at the Lincoln Park Zoo.
The media was treated to a nice brunch this morning on industrial biotechnology, from fuel to fashion. The fashion part comes in with the fashion show. We had models wearing clothing made from biobased products. Like the nice gown shown here.
The #17 Team Ethanol car is on display here at BIO 2006 in the Novozymes booth. Nobozymes is one of the sponsors of the car.
