Why Go Bio: There's Nothing We Can't Make, Including Sustainable Choices

As demand for greener materials and Eco labels increases, product stewards will increasingly seek bio-based solutions to meet their companies' needs. Rapid advances in biotechnologies are making an expanding list of bio-based materials viable.

This session is designed to assist product stewards in sourcing state-of-the-art, sustainable materials and developing their knowledge of the field. It will also appeal to anyone seeking to explore current and emerging trends in bio-based materials, technologies, consumer demand, and human resources.

Through a facilitated panel format, researchers, university students, and bioeconomy experts from across the U.S. will discuss why companies can't afford to ignore bio-based sources. They will present exciting proof-of-concept exemplars and describe trends pointing to a bio-based future. Join us for access to an invaluable network and a fresh perspective on doing good while doing well.
