The EntreTech Forum Presents... Greening Of America - The Conversion of Bio-Agriculture, Bio-Energy, and Bio-Products to Eco-Sustainable Businesses

BOSTON, Jan. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- At The EntreTech Forum's February 17th meeting, the panel of business, technology and investment professionals - all contributors, supporters and participants in the emerging bio-economy - will emphasize businesses and technologies that present eco-sustainable activities for this "Triple Bio" play of bio-agriculture, bio-energy, and bio-products.

Last summer we saw the impact of peaking global production of fossil hydrocarbons in the massive price increase for our fuels. Even more devastating was the impact to the agriculture sector for food production, processing and transportation.

A Bio-Economy is emerging with bio-agriculture, bio-energy, bio-products taking on new emphasis in our national quest for energy independence and sustainability.

As Chad Kruger of Washington State University identified, this "Triple Bio" involves three interwoven tracks of:

  • bio-agriculture to produce food and feedstock in an environmentally and energetically sustainable way. It is a suite of concepts, practices and technologies which capitalize on biological processes to maximize resource conservation and resource-use.

  • bio-products research and development to process raw biological feedstock into useful and higher value materials. This refers to refined, value-added materials derived from biomass, such as industrial, biological, medical and nutraceutical products.

  • bio-energy to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels for transportation fuels, electricity and heat. It refers to both power (electricity and heat) and liquid fuels derived from biomass.

About The EntreTech Forum

The EntreTech Forum consists of moderated monthly panel discussions on emerging academic research and the commercialization of this technology. It was designed for those interested in technology innovation and marketing collaboration and networking with fellow entrepreneurs, business and government executives, investors, and technology researchers.

The technology-innovation presentations feature entrepreneurial and corporate accomplishments along commercialization pathways with discussions of tech transfer and technology incubation and research from universities, industry and government. The multi-disciplinary subjects of raising and utilizing different forms of capital, building alliances and structuring deals are included as part of the programming, and serve as tools for the entrepreneur and researcher to commercialize science and technology.

The EntreTech Forum is an affiliate of Northeastern University's School of Technological Entrepreneurship (STE) and is directed by a governing board of business principals, investors, and researchers.
