Bio-Based Chemicals
13 – 14 March 2012
Rotterdam, The Netherlands

A growing number of bio-based chemicals are already in commercial production with several additional products expected to reach commercialisation in the next few years. With advances in conversion methodologies and developments in achieving economies of scale, new building blocks and platform chemicals of bio-based origin are being developed and starting to compete effectively with their petrochemical equivalents.

As a new value chain for bio-based products begins to strengthen and develop, the Bio-based Chemicals Summit will bring together the full spectrum of stakeholders.
Key focus at Bio-Based Chemicals 2012 will be on:
• Bringing chemistry majors and bio-chemical companies together to move towards an integrated chemicals supply chain
• The end user perspective on future market trends - what will be driving the market in years to come?
• Achieving technology scale up - what paths are being taken, where is investment available?
• Exploring future-proof feed stocks - breaking the link with volatile oil prices
