PHOTOS: Young Visits Liberation Labs in Richmond as Part of “Made in Indiana” Tour

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Yesterday, U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) visited the construction site for Liberation Labs’ new biomanufacturing facility in Richmond.

The visit continued Young’s “Made in Indiana” tour. Throughout 2024, Young will be visiting with Hoosiers who are contributing to our economic and national security.

Liberation Labs is building its first commercial-scale, purpose-built, precision fermentation biomanufacturing facility in Richmond. The facility, which will have a capacity of 600,000 liters with a fully dedicated downstream process (DSP), will produce bio-based proteins and other building block ingredients at a scale and cost that will fill a pressing need among both new and established consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies and other industrial manufacturers. Commercial production is expected by the end of 2024.

“Liberation Labs is another example of Hoosiers leading in biotech. I continued my ‘Made in Indiana’ tour with a visit to learn more about this first of its kind facility and how it will bring jobs and opportunity to Wayne County,” said Senator Young.
