SPEAKERS: Dr. Brian Balmer, Industry Principal and Dr. Leo Dokos, Program Manager for Frost & Sullivan’s Chemicals, Materials and Food group.
The use of renewable, bio-based feedstock is well established in many different niches of the chemical industry. However, a challenge up to now is that many of these niches have operated almost independently. The question that arises is - is there scope for a more holistic approach? This would enable chemical companies to make best use of the chemistry available to them in nature, much the same as a Verbund approach can do for an integrated petrochemical chain.
This briefing will benefit all chemical companies currently involved in - or thinking they should be involved in - the use of bio-based products. This includes upstream producers of the renewable resource, to specialty chemicals and materials companies manufacturing chemical products from bio-based building blocks.
"The bio-based chemicals industry is undergoing tremendous development at present, driven both by consumer demand and by fears over the future of crude oil, but these developments are still mostly in isolated niches," observes Industry Principal Brian Balmer. "What the industry will need, as it begins to mature, is a more integrated approach."
