Siloam Springs received a Bioeconomy Development Opportunity (BDO) Zone designation, making it the first NWA city to receive the title.
- The right place: The poultry litter supply in Siloam Springs earned an ‘A’ BDO Zone rating, meaning the area is one of the best for “low-risk bio-economy project development.” With this designation, a bio-based market has potential to grow out of the small community.
- What this means: The BDO Zone designation will potentially attract investments in green technologies, create clean jobs, and clean energy. The BDO Zone Initiative has a goal of 1000 Zone designations in 4 years.
