Biotechnology has become part of the mosaic of key technological enablers to strategic industrial growth. This presentation will discuss the insights of the leader of industrial biotechnology at the Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), a trade association that represents more than 900 biotechnology companies, academic institutions, and state biotechnology centers across the United States and in more than 30 other nations.

Industrial biotechnology is a key tool in developing bio-based economies the world over. The sector has evolved from being focused on enzyme production in the early days to advanced biofuels production and now a broad array of industrial and consumer products. In recent years there has been an explosion of commercialization activity in the space around renewable chemical platforms. This includes well known bulk chemicals, fine chemicals, food ingredients and flavorings. This growth has come about partly because of government support, advances in technology, and demand for more renewable and sustainable processes. This Presentation will review the current state of the bio-based economy and industrial biotech in the U.S. and beyond.

Join our discussion on industrial biotechnology and on how with the insights of an industry thought leader you can realize strategic and operating value.
