Gov. Pillen lauds bioeconomy in Omaha speech

Nebraska Governor Jim Pillen says unlocking the full potential of the bioeconomy will be critical to the future of agriculture.

“It will safeguard and it will enhance the United States’ food system. It’s going to revitalize our rural communities and create a decarbonized future for our planet.”

He says the state’s efforts to expand renewable fuels production is an example. “Because of renewable fuels policy, we now have 24 ethanol plants. We have the infrastructure that allows Nebraska to be the epicenter of the new bioeconomy.”

Pillen says he backs bioeconomy investments from the federal government. “You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to understand what President Biden has done with putting forth the dollars for the new bioeconomy. What an extraordinary impact that will have for the decarbonization and having clean energy around the world.”

The governor spoke during the Plant Based Products Council’s recent meeting in Omaha.
