MDAT supports educational and outreach efforts around a national incentive bill that opens opportunities and limits barriers to biobased, renewable, and sustainable chemicals and materials production in the United States. This effort aims to incentivize biobased production and infrastructure by providing federal funds for production credits and capital offsets and will work to leverage state incentive efforts as well.
