TOP Dynamic development: Bio-based building blocks are the key to new sustainable materials

The 7th International Conference on Bio-Based Materials, 8-10 April 2014, at the Maternushaus in Cologne (Germany)

In the last few years, many new innovations have taken place in the field of bio-based building blocks and platform chemicals for the chemical industry. The main recent innovations have been new production plants for several bio-based building blocks like succinic acid, isobutene, butadiene, butanediol and furan-based chemicals.

These products will be the focus of the conference’s second day, when companies such as Reverdia (NL/F), Global Bioenergies (F) – with their latest investment in Leuna Chemical Park (DE) – SEKAB (SE), Corbion (NL), Arkema (F), SOPREMA (F), Succinity (DE/NL), Novozymes (DK), Avantium (NL) and Myriant, a special guest from the US, will present their latest innovations and investments, as well as their experiences of producing bio-based building blocks and polymers.
