Infocast announces the sustainable chemicals and plastic adoptions and Applications Summit this Septembe

Infocast is pleased to announce two sustainable chemicals events September 1-3, 2015 in San Diego, CA.

The Sustainable Chemicals & Plastics Adoption & Applications and Methane Bioengineering Summits will gather industry leaders to share the latest news and trends on sustainable chemicals & plastics with a detailed overview of the challenges before them and potential solutions to combat those challenges.

North America will emerge as the global leader of the growing bio-based & sustainable chemicals and plastics industries, according to projections. Products from sustainable feedstocks can be the answer to a number of corporate sustainability goals, however, challenges remain in moving some market segments from the technology vetting stage to full-scale commercialization.

The next generation of bio-based/sustainable companies must learn how to accurately articulate the value proposition of sustainable products to investors and address the challenges associated with moving beyond niche markets in order to succeed.

Infocast’s Sustainable Chemicals & Plastics Adoption & Applications Summit will provide a detailed overview of the challenges Consumer Brands, OEM, Retail and supply chain decision makers, Corporate Strategics, and Bio-based and Sustainable Chemical companies face in ramping up the adoption of sustainable products and outlining the path to commercialization.

The events kicks off on September 1 with the Methane Bioengineering Summit which will explore the high potential of methane as a sustainable feedstock and energy source. Attendees will have the opportunity to discuss and learn from leading consumer brands, financiers, North American and International Policy Makers, Government Representatives, and Chemical and Conversion companies about the challenges they face and the potential approaches in the adoption of sustainable chemicals.
