Lee Enterprises Consulting began in 1995 and, over the past twenty years, has grown to become the world’s premier bioeconomy consulting group with over 100 consultants worldwide. Each of our experts is a renowned expert in his or her field, hand selected based on their education, experience, and reputation.  We are divided into nine sections to serve all facets of the bio economy.  While we are certainly the largest bioeconomy consulting group in the world, it is the quality of our experts and our collective knowledge that makes us the best.

Below is a non-exhaustive list of many of the Lee Enterprises Consulting services.For  specific industries see biofuels, biomaterials & biochemicals, bio-technologies, feedstocks, or synthetic biology.

“We engaged Lee Enterprises to do a pre-feasibility study of a value-added wood process with a commercial partner. Their team of consultants – including two from Canada – provided a comprehensive, detailed preliminary review of the technology, economics, and market, including some solid recommendations for implementation. Our entire group was impressed with the professionalism and collegial working relationships, and we would be very glad to work with them again.” – Canadian Municipality
