Bioeconomy in the USA
The United States sees an important economic future in the bioeconomy. The US bioeconomy strategy presented in 2012, the “National Bioeconomy Blueprint”, explicitly includes biomedicine.
It also benefits from being a leading biotechnology nation. Many US chemical companies rely on bio-based production processes. The construction of biorefineries and biofuel production are generously promoted. The USA is a heavyweight in the field of green genetic engineering, too: 40% of the global cultivation area of genetically modified crops is located in the USA.
