Joanna Schroeder

One of the great aspects of the United Soybean Board’s Biobased Stakeholders Dialogue that took place at USDA’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. is showcasing the up-and-coming biobased technologies. One of the exhibitors at the event was BioBlend and to learn more about their products, Cindy Zimmerman spoke with Bill Smith. The company makes biodegradable and renewable lubricants.

When asked about his thoughts on the event, Smith answered, “These types of events are raising awareness for biobased products. The USDA has been a great proponent of biobased products through their Biopreferred program to raise awareness both within the federal government and the general population at large. So it’s been a great opportunity to meet with various stakeholders that participate in the industry.
