“Since August, when the EPA announced waivers for 2018, the Trump administration has tried to mend fences with the biofuels industry and corn lobby. Last week the EPA proposed a plan to boost biofuels demand that would base biofuel volumes required for blending on exemptions recommended by the U.S. Energy Department. The plan was met by further consternation from industry leaders…”

A lack of #coronavirus test plates makes it challenging to test as many people as possible. Our R&D dept is co-developing a method of washing plastic test plates for #COVID19 testing, so they can be safely reused. @novonordisk @lego_group @mieleprof @regionH @AmagerHvidovre https://t.co/VKwOSqNpCN
