Smithers Rapra is pleased to announce a free webinar, open to all on how Progress in Biobased Material Development is Creating Opportunities to Deliver More Sustainable Products.
Jack Huttner, Biofuels Digest-recognized expert on the issues of biofuels/chemicals/products will present and Kate Lewis, Deputy Manager of USDA’s BioPreferred Program, will moderate this informative lead-in to the Biopolymers Symposium 2013. The live webinar will take place Friday, May 3, at 10 a.m. EST.
“We all contribute to and keep current about various investments, technological innovations, studies, and policies from Government, industry, and institutions to ‘grow the biobased economy.’ This is an invite to participate in an exclusive executive preview of deep-dive information to be shared at this June’s Biopolymers Symposium about global bioeconomy status and growth,” said Lewis. “The webinar will be a brief info-packed online seminar providing a multi-national overview with special focus on North America, the White House’s 2012 Bioeconomy report from last year, and how biopolymers/bioplastics stand to benefit from this activity.”
The webinar is a pre-event to the Biopolymers Symposium 2013, taking place June 11-12 at The Field Museum in Chicago, IL. The 250+ anticipated attendees will also hear from a diverse group of bioplastics developers, manufacturers and end-users including Algix; BIOFASE, Cascade Engineering; Cereplast; EcoLogic; European Bioplastics; First Green Partners; Green Dot Holdings LLC; IBM; Kimberly-Clark; National Restaurant Association; Natureworks, Procter & Gamble; Seattle Mariners/Safeco Field; Volvo Group Trucks Technology and 30+ additional speakers. The conference will close with a presentation by the winner of the first annual Innovation in Bioplastics Award to be awarded by The SPI Bioplastics Council (BC), a special interest group of SPI: The Plastics Industry Trade Association.
