United States Senator Debbie Stabenow visited Kettering University yesterday to announce new Grow it Here, Make it Here initiatives to advance Michigan’s emerging bio-based manufacturing industry.

According to the Kettering University News, Stabenow said bio-based manufacturing, using agriculture goods to make value-added products, is an industry poised to grow and create jobs in Michigan. Last fall, Stabenow announced her first Grow it Here, Make it Here initiative. New tax cuts would be created for companies that invest in new facilities or purchase equipment to manufacture bio-based products. Her new initiatives would increase access to capital for bio-based manufacturers, improve marketing of bio-based profits and spur the commercialization of new agricultural innovations to help create new jobs.

Stabenow made the announcements at Kettering’s Innovation Center. She was joined by representatives from the University, Swedish Biogas international, Landaal Packaging Systems, Flint Mayor Dayne Walling and the Bio Alliance Council.
