US Agriculture Secretary Vilsack to visit Plymouth

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack is scheduled to make two stops in eastern North Carolina, one at a school and the other at a paper products company.

Vilsack is slated to meet on Thursday with students and faculty at the Northeast Regional School of Biotechnology and Agriscience in Plymouth. He is slated to tour the school facilities and discuss the future of American agriculture with students.

Later Thursday, Vilsack is scheduled to visit a Domtar, Inc. facility that produces lignin, a biobased material with the potential to create advanced new products and energy.

Domtar is working with a number of partners, including the U.S. Forest Products Laboratory, on development of lignin applications - including for fuel additives, solid fuels and high performance adhesives.
