Also in attendance will be, the USDA, the mayor of Loudon, member of the Economic Development Office and representatives from its parent companies, DuPont and Tate & Lyle.

Michael Saltzberg, global business director of biomaterials for DuPont, said, “This joint venture started as a revolutionary innovation project that applied the tools of modern biotechnology to make high-performance biomaterials in a much more sustainable way than traditional petro-chemistry. Its track record of success has inspired the academic and industrial science community around the world to invest in industrial biotech and is a case study of how to successfully innovate in this space.”

Greg Wenndt, vice president and general manager of industrial starch and bioventures at Tate & Lyle, was quoted saying, “Our partnership with DuPont is a great example of bringing the best of two organizations together to create a first to market product and process that continues to demonstrate versatility and functionality in the global marketplace.
