As a partner in the technology group, Ginkgo will help de-risk and accelerate project development in BDO zones
Ginkgo is pleased to announce that we’ve joined the Bioeconomy Development Opportunity (BDO) Zone Strategic Alliance as a partner in the Technology Group.
BDO Zone Strategic Alliance Partners include some of the leading companies in the bioenergy industry that help de-risk biobased project development in BDO Zones.
Our vision of a thriving bioeconomy is aligned with the BDO Zone Initiative’s own goal of driving, accelerating and catalyzing biobased investment and commercial project development in communities across the US. As the Initiative aims to create 1,000 BDO Zones, we are thrilled to contribute efforts towards de-risking bio-based investments. By joining the Initiative, we also have the unique opportunity to better understand and address local customer needs for synthetic biology applications, while ultimately driving more value for biorefineries via the application of our synbio platform.
“The BDO Zone Initiative welcomes Ginkgo Bioworks as the newest addition to the growing Strategic Alliance,” said Jordan Solomon, President of Ecostrat. “Ginkgo’s robust technology, capabilities and connections in the biomanufacturing value chain will be fundamental to accelerating the bio-based economy in areas such as connecting feedstock supply, financial investment, bio-technology, process design, and construction to grow bio-manufacturing capacity.”
American biomass provides an economic development engine with the potential to create 160,000 jobs and nearly $15 billion of economic benefit. In Canada, the national economic impact potential is estimated at 16,060 direct, indirect, and induced jobs and over $1.48 billion annually of economic benefit. The BDO Zone Initiative can help North America realize this potential by supporting new market development for bioenergy, advanced biofuels, biobased heat and power, bio-materials, and clean hydrogen.
