Memphis Bioworks concludes sweet sorghum study

By | October 06, 2009
The Memphis Bioworks Foundation has completed a study titled "The Potential of Sweet Sorghum in the Delta Region." The report serves as a macrocosmic analysis of the potential for sorghum as a biofuel feedstock in areas susceptible to drought, or requiring low input. Conducted by the Battelle Technology Partnership Practice, the study included participation by companies in Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri and Tennessee. The study concluded the Mississippi Delta Region, including Memphis, can secure a key leadership role in the emerging multi-billion global bioeconomy by leveraging its assets and attracting technology partners from outside the region.
