Alfred State Biorefinery To Get 6.6 Million

January 9, 2018

ALBANY, NY – State Senator Cathy Young Issued The Following Statement:

“I applaud the exciting announcement made during the Governor’s State of the State address that New York State will be committing up to $6.6 million to the Biorefinery Development and Commercialization (BDCC) at SUNY Alfred. I have championed this project since 2014 when it was in its infancy and was proud to secure $1 million in state funding the following year, so it is tremendously gratifying to see this effort approaching the goal line with this newest infusion of state funding. The rising energy and collaboration surrounding the initiative is further confirmation of what I recognized immediately: that this is a project with the potential to transform the economic landscape of Allegany County and the Southern Tier. I am enthusiastic about these developments and look forward to continuing to work with all those involved to see our vision realized.”
