Infocast, the premier business intelligence and networking events producer in the Bio-Based Chemicals and Safer Products space, is pleased to reveal the return of its Next Generation Bio-Based and Sustainable Chemicals Summit, scheduled for February 4-7, 2014 and will take place in San Diego, CA at the Hilton San Diego Del Mar hotel.
The bio-based space is moving at a rapid pace as consumer trends for greener products drive the market, and the ability to replace petrochemicals with bio alternatives is an extremely valuable attribute. However, the industry is currently facing “growing pains” in moving the industry beyond just vetting technology and into developing renewable applications to fit into the consumer’s ultimate value proposition. Therefore, a whole generation of bio-based companies must learn the winning formula for what they need to compete, understand how this industry fits into the larger picture of sustainability and address the challenges associated with carving out a larger competitive industry position to move beyond niche markets.
Infocast’s 5th Annual Next Generation Bio-Based and Sustainable Chemicals Summit will provide a detailed overview of the critical developments the industry is currently facing, including innovative feedstocks, end-user applications, and progress of established and new chemical production platforms and applications. Attendees will learn from 10+ Brand Owners and Chemical Majors, 20+ C-Level Executives from Leading Technology Companies, and U.S. and International Government & Industry representatives on the program. The event features 9 real-world case studies from DSM, ENVIRON & Sigma-Aldrich, Genomatica, Novasep, Novomer, POET, PSA Peugeot Citroen, RSC Bio Solutions & Waste Pro USA, and Succinity GmbH.
This informative event will feature spotlight sessions on policy updates, financing innovation, sustainability drivers and international bio-based chemicals partnering with speakers from Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), Avantium, BASF, BioAmber, Brazil’s Sugarcane Industry Association (UNICA), Huntsman, IBM, Interface, Lanzatech, Metabolix, SC Johnson and Son, Sherwin-Williams, Singapore Economic Development Board, Thailand National Innovation Agency, USDA, and many more!
