San Francisco, CA (PRWEB UK) 18 October 2012
For three days, the biofuel industry’s top CEOs and hundreds of stakeholders gather for the 3rd Annual Advanced Biofuels Markets Congress & Exhibition (http://www.advancedbiofuelsmarkets.com) to network, share news, insights and market insights for 2013 and beyond. The conference takes place October 29-31, 2012 at the Parc 55 Wyndham hotel in San Francisco.
The annual event is a partnership between the leader in global biofuels conferences and business intelligence, Green Power Conferences, and the world’s most widely read biofuels daily, Biofuels Digest which ensures that the content will be fresh, the attendees will be senior level and the information and insights actionable.
“With less than two weeks to go, we’ve already confirmed more than 400 leaders from across the biofuels value chain,” said Claire Poole, Head of Biofuels at Green Power Conferences and co-organizer of Advanced Biofuels Markets. “For anyone operating in the biofuels ecosystem, this event is an incredible opportunity to meet with the leaders moving the industry forward. Seventy percent of these confirmed attendees haven’t joined us before, which indicates how the industry is growing.”
Featured speakers include industry CEOs Patrick R. Gruber – Gevo, James C. Collins – DuPont Industrial Biosciences, Fred Cannon – KiOR, Guido Ghisolfi – Beta Renwables, Jonathan Wolfson – Solazyme, William Roe - Coskata, Jim Macias – Fulcrum BioEnergy, Tom Van Aken – Avantium, Ed Dineen – LS9, Daphne Preuss – Chromatin, , John Nicols – Codexis, Jennifer Holmgren – LanzaTech, Jim Imbler – ZeaChem, Tom Buis – Growth Energy, and government representatives Sarah Bittleman – USDA, Valerie Reed – US DoE Biomass Program and Chris Tindal – US Navy.
In addition to discussions on policy, including the future of the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), sessions at the Advanced Biofuels Markets 2012 cover the most pressing topics facing the industry including brand new coverage of opportunities in the biobased markets, a global market update and closer look at the Defense Production Act, as well as fresh perspectives on the stalwart key drivers of the advanced biofuels industry; policy, finance, technology, feedstock and partnerships.
“Each week we see new developments in discovery, commercialization and partnerships,” said Jim Lane, Publisher & Editor of Biofuels Digest, co-organizer of the conference. “Bringing together the leaders of the bio-based economy at Advanced Biofuels Markets, means we can obtain a bird’s eye view of how the pieces fit together and start to understand what we can expect in the coming year.”
