Biobased chemicals: a 2020 update including global and Australian implications
Join the webinar to understand the role of biochemicals in reaching the Sustainable Development Scenario
Ed De Jong - Ed is Vice President Development, Renewable Chemistries at Avantium (Dutch renewable chemical company). Ed is also a deputy leader of IEA Task 42.
Geoff Bell - Geoff is the CEO of Microbiogen. Microbiogen is a leading developer of superior yeast for a range of applications including biofuels from sugar streams.
Over the last decade the deployment of renewable biochemicals has been disappointing. Without support from Governments, it is simply too easy to continue to use plentiful and cheap non-renewable sources of carbon to produce biochemicals.
However, technology continues to improve and there are a multitude of exciting opportunities to deploy equivalent or superior products into the future in the field of biochemicals.
Everyone is welcome to join the webinar, in particular technology developers, sugar manufacturers, companies with carbon rich side streams, university researchers, renewable financiers, investors in renewables and policy makers.
