A 2007 study by Informa Economics of the factors that affect the consumer price index for food finds that rising oil prices, not ethanol, has had the greatest impact.

Executive Summary

In a presentation at the Taiwan Chemical Industry Forum, Matthew Carr outlines how industrial biotechnology is the third wave in biotech.

Biotechnology, the combination of biology and technology, includes biologic applications, diagnostic tools and businesses that improve everyday life by providing solutions to some of life's most vexing problems.

This side-event, organized by the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) and cosponsored by the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM), provided an overview on the key elements at play in establishment an enabling environment for transfer of technology to support the full implementation of CBD objectives and priorities.

Will fuel crops decrease the amount of food available?

What happens in Washington influences biotechnology progress every bit as much as what happens on Wall Street or in the lab.

The theory claiming that the over-patenting of biotechnology research hinders the research and development of new treatments is not supported by empirical evidence.

BIO recognizes the importance of providing the fruits of science and innovation in healthcare for the benefit of all American citizens.

How is biotechnology going to change your company? How can you stay in step with—or leap ahead of—the competition by using biotech to cut costs and create new products?

The Biotechnology Industry Organization’s Industrial & Environmental (BIO I&E) Section can help you find the answers. We want to be your partner in navigating the complex, fluid world of industrial biotechnology.

Sparked by aggressive ethanol mandates by the government, the debate over whether the U.S. can produce enough corn to meet the demand for both food and fuel continues to grow.

While a growing number of policy leaders support greater use of ethanol, some critics believe using agricultural feedstocks to produce biofuels creates competition "between the world's supermarkets and its service stations."

Biorefineries to produce advanced biofuels and biobased product require sustainable sources of cellulosic biomass. Adoption of no-till agriculture promises significant economic and environmental benefits for farmers while enabling them to provide cellulosic biomass from crop residues to these biorefineries.
