​​Thank you for joining us for the 1st Annual Bio-Based & Renewable Chemicals Conference.  


This event was designed to bring together individuals in the world of renewable chemistry research and manufacturing to discuss both the opportunities and challenges facing the industry today. 

With an ever-increasing need for petroleum-based products, our dependence on petroleum feedstocks is unsustainable, not least from an environmental standpoint. And while the bio-based industry seeks to develop and commercialize alternative products, conversion to a more sustainable alternative to fossil fuel based raw materials is slow to materialize as seeming insurmountable  challenges arise.

We hope you enjoyed the discussions with our expert speakers as we looked at these challenges, considered where the opportunities lie, and the resources available in the mid-Atlantic region to help speed up the commercialization of these technologies.


We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our Sponsors, Speakers and Panelists, without whom this event could  not have taken place.
