11th International Conference on Bio-based Materials

Cologne, Germany

Bio-based building blocks and platform chemicals will be one focus of the conference. Plenty of new bio-based building blocks, such as furan derivatives, succinic acid and 1,4-butanediol, are entering the market and thus give the opportunity to create brand new bio-based polymers. As an event that strives to highlight innovation, the conference will again dedicate a session to young and promising start-ups. High-potential start-ups from the field of bio-based chemistry, polymers and biotechnology are invited to present themselves to industry and get in contact with potential investors. To further honour and acknowledge new developments in the innovative bio-based chemicals and materials industry, every year the participants of the conference choose the winner of the Innovation Award “Bio-based Material of the Year”.
