FREDERICK, Md. (PRWEB) February 13, 2023
The Bioeconomy 500 for 2023, published today by The Daily Digest, lists outstanding leaders of the bioeconomy’s development and deployment. The 500 honors scientists, engineers, policy makers, financiers, project developers, feedstock pioneers, offtakers, advocates and supply-chain and distribution partners in the US and around the world.
Among those listed are Joanne Ivancic, executive director of Advanced Biofuels USA, a nonprofit educational organization based in Frederick, MD that counts its free online library of more than 45,000 indexed items as key to its contribution to the transition from a fossil-based to a renewable economy. Advanced Biofuels USA is a bioeconomy resource for everyone from opinion-leaders, decision-makers and legislators to industry professionals, investors, feedstock growers and researchers, as well as journalists, teachers, students, and the general public.
Chris Tindal, a long-time board member and supporter of Advanced Biofuels USA and Assistant Director at the Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative (CAAFI) is also recognized for his on-going contributions. Tindal’s influence on the transition from fossil-based to renewable fuels goes back to his leadership as the Director for Operational Energy underneath the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Navy for Energy, from which he retired, where he was in charge of setting energy policy and direction for the Department of the Navy and promoting the adoption of alternative fuels and renewable energy resources. Additionally, he developed intergovernmental, international, and industry relationships throughout the energy field. He was the Navy leader of the pioneering U.S. Department of Agriculture/ U.S. Department of Energy/ U.S. Navy Alternative Fuels Initiative which developed programs to launch the advanced biofuels industry. In his role, Chris successfully led the Great Green Fleet effort, in which the U.S. Navy acquired and used 77 million gallons of F-76 renewable diesel blend for their ships in the Great Green Fleet deployment in 2016.
“The bioeconomy has grown leaps and bounds in the past 10 years,” said Digest editor Jim Lane, “and it is usually told as a story of technologies and Net Zero pledges — but it is individuals who actually translate opportunity into accomplishment, and the Bioeconomy 500 recognizes those individuals who played the leading part. Congratulations to all the winners and the friends who nominated, voted and campaigned for them.”
“We are pleased to enjoy the international recognition from the bioeconomy community reflected by our inclusion in this prestigious listing. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of all The 500 at The Digest’s Advanced Bioeconomy Leadership Conference this March in Washington, DC,” noted Ivancic.
