Insights: News Kilpatrick's Mark J. Riedy Earns International Recognition on the 2024 Bioeconomy 500 List

WASHINGTON D.C. (March 19) – Kilpatrick announced today that Mark J. Riedy, partner in the firm’s Washington D.C. office, has been recognized on the 2024 Bioeconomy 500 by The Daily Digest, which highlights individuals for their leadership contributions to the bioeconomy’s development and project deployment.

This prestigious, international list honors scientists, engineers, policy makers, financiers, project developers, feedstock pioneers, offtakers, advocates, and supply-chain and distribution partners. All Digest subscribers were eligible to nominate and vote for candidates of their choosing.

“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 will recognize those individuals who played the leading part. Congratulations to all the winners and the supporters who nominated and campaigned for them.”

All honorees will have the opportunity to attend the Advanced Bioeconomy Leadership Conference and take part in the ceremony celebrating those named to 2024 Bioeconomy 500, including a presentation of the official medals and ribbons.
