The Companion Event to Infocast's Sold-Out February Bio-Based Chemicals Value Chain Summit!

Infocast's sold-out Bio-Based Chemicals Summit in San Diego was the first meeting to seriously discuss the critical business issues in this new industry and to facilitate the connections between the key players who will create the value chain necessary to make it a reality. This sequel will fill in the details and deepen the networking opportunities, providing all the detailed knowledge you need to understand where this dynamic new space is heading and how you can profitably implement your business plans. THREE separate events will drill down into:

  1. Demand from consumer-facing companies for bio-based materials
  2. New fundamental science and tool innovation
  3. A definitive, state-of-the-art survey of the economics and technical maturity of the leading biomass-to-chemicals conversion platforms, presented by technology leaders and business development officers

This THREE-meeting-in-one event is the ONLY place you will find comprehensive updates of these three key components, including global chemical, agribusiness and consumer-facing end users, as well as world class technologists and scientists. For anyone who wants to understand and play in this developing eco-system, Bio-Based Chemicals East is the ultimate venue.
