The summit celebrated the vision, innovation, and dedication across the United States to developing bio-based solutions to global challenges facing the country and is being held in conjunction with President Biden’s Sept. 12, 2022, executive order launching a National Biotechnology and Biomanufacturing Initiative to ensure that products invented in the United States can be manufactured here as well. The president also recently signed the landmark CHIPS & Science Act, which makes historic investments to strengthen American manufacturing, research and development, science and technology.
“I’m honored to be included in this summit on behalf of Danimer Scientific and the bioplastics industry,” Croskrey said. “Since our company’s founding in 2004, Danimer has been laser-focused on finding environmentally friendly, economically feasible solutions to the ever-growing plastic waste crisis. I look forward to working with the White House Administration to advance President Biden’s executive order and to continue developing and producing biodegradable products to reduce humans’ impact on our environment.”
