Bio-based products are a viable solution to a number of corporate sustainability goals: staying ahead of the curve, reducing carbon footprints, and in some cases, the removal and utilization of methane and carbon dioxide as sustainable chemical feedstocks. Unlike other feedstocks, bio-based and sustainable feedstocks are not at the mercy of natural gas and oil prices, which offers retailers and consumer brands greater product price stability. In an effort to move beyond niche markets and ramp up commercialization, many start-ups have scrapped IPO plans in favor of strategic partnerships. However, the industry still faces challenges in full-scale commercialization.
Infocast’s Sustainable Chemicals & Plastic Adoptions & Applications Summit and Methane Bioengineering Summit will address these challenges and provide case studies on practical industry solutions and best practices. Retailers and Brand owners will share their views on the value proposition of sustainable chemicals. OEMs and conversion technology companies will share the latest on sustainable chemicals research, development, and commercial adoption. The event will begin with the Methane Bioengineering Summit, which will explore the high potential of methane as a sustainable feedstock and energy source.
