California Industrial Biotech Conference
The era of biofuels and bio-based chemicals has arrived. As oil prices continue to rise, fuel and chemical industries look for alternative ways to produce their products. These include fine and bulk chemicals, solvents, bio-plastics, vitamins, food additives, bio-pesticides and liquid biofuels such as bio-ethanol and bio-diesel.
Industrial biotechnology applies the tools of biology to develop innovative processes and products in a cost-efficient and eco-efficient manner, using sustainable feedstocks. The integration of disciplines such as biochemistry, microbiology, and process technology to develop processes and products, based on microbial, animal or plant cells, their organelles or enzymes as biocatalysts is at the core of the development of industrial biotechnology. An increased level of research will improve manufacturing of everyday materials and will advance or replace industrial relevant products.
BIOCOM and BayBio are bringing you a day and a half conference that will combine the business, research and investment aspects in the industrial biotech companies through panel discussions, partnering opportunities and ample networking opportunities to extend your relationships. Additionally, this conference will demonstrate why California is a center of innovation in the industrial biotech space.
