The Next Generation Bio-Based Chemicals Summit is a new & growing tradition for key industry players, leading developers, government representatives, ground breaking researchers, and renowned financiers to discuss the innovations of these high-value bio-based assets. Our latest edition will add new sessions to discuss:

  • The Strategic Sciences & Commercialization Strategies Briefing - A Dual Track Session:
    (hosted by CBiRC & SynBERC)
    • Strategic Sciences: A Collaboration Between Innovation & Industry
    • Commercialization Strategies: The Road to Commercialization
  • The Next Generation Bio-Based Chemicals Summit
    Also in a Dual Track Format Offering:

    • Track Two:Technical Advancements for Bio-Based Chemical Technologies
  • Pre-Treatment Technological Innovations for Bio-Based Chemicals Forum


Following an unprecedented, sold-out inaugural summit, the 2nd Annual Next Generation Bio-Based Chemicals Summit proudly returns to San Diego bringing the broad value chain together – from chemical, biotech, bio-converter, biorefiner, agribusiness/feedstock, algae, bio-fuel, bio-plastic/polymer, investment communities and beyond – in a single industry specific gathering place built to foster cutting edge innovation. While expanding its international draw of the industry’s top leaders, this year’s Next Generation Bio-Based Chemicals Summit has confirmed a host of new global participants eager to build this game changing industry.

“Green Chemistry” has become the sustainability trailblazer. The opportunity by 2025 could be larger than BIO’s $500 billion dollar estimates – a “Texas-sized marketplace” indeed. By many reasonable projections the global opportunity for bio-based chemicals could carve out a stratospheric portion of the multi-trillion dollar global chemicals sector in the next decade onward. These high value assets offer a staggering range of applications from intermediates, plastics, solvents, surfactants, and fragrances, to consumer goods, foods, fabrics, detergents and much, much more. Meeting the demands of successful commercialization can prove daunting without the right mix of key players, partnerships, cost structures, capitalization and established networks across the worldwide value chain. The 2nd Annual Next Generation Bio-Based Chemicals Summit provides an unprecedented opportunity to network globally with the innovators defining the future of bio-based chemicals.

With its much anticipated return, participants of the 2nd Annual Next Generation Bio-Based Chemicals Summit are assured of sharing in cutting edge content, while receiving comprehensive technology and industry updates, and a highly acclaimed format that is growing into a tradition in which bio-based industry leaders eagerly look forward to participating.
