Biofuel and biobased product company executives, scientists and government officials from across the globe will speak in breakout sessions at BIO's 9th annual World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioprocessing.
The world's largest industrial biotechnology conference for business leaders, investors, academics and policymakers in biofuels, biobased products, renewable chemicals, synthetic biology, food ingredients and biomass comes to Orlando, April 29 - May 2 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center.
Continued commercialization of the industrial biotechnology sector can drive the creation of a biobased economy, which can strengthen the nation's economic security and enhance energy security.
"Speakers at the World Congress will highlight the keys to commercialization in industrial biotechnology," said Brent Erickson, executive vice president of BIO's Industrial and Environmental Section.
"While industrial biotechnology offers a clear value proposition, a number of hurdles need to be addressed to fully realize the commercial potential of biobased products and chemicals. Fortunately, we seem to be on the path to commercialize these solutions and to build a worldwide biobased economy, which is good news for business, consumers and our environment."
BIO's World Congress will feature six breakout session tracks over three days, with industry presentations on Advanced Biofuel Technologies; Algae and Feedstock Crops; Renewable Chemical Platforms and Biobased Materials; Specialty Chemicals; Synthetic Biology and Metabolic Engineering; and Technical Presentations. The full program of breakout panel sessions and speakers is available online.
Online pre-registration for reporters and editors is now open. All programs at the BIO World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioprocessing are open to attendance by members of the media.
Complimentary media registration is available to editors and reporters with valid press credentials working full time for print, broadcast or web publications.

Is Seaweed the Future of Biofuel
Tel Aviv, Israel (SPX) Mar 07, 2012
As scientists continue the hunt for energy sources that are safer, cleaner alternatives to fossil fuel, an ever-increasing amount of valuable farmland is being used to produce bioethanol, a source of transportation fuel. And while land-bound sources are renewable, economists and ecologists fear that diverting crops to produce fuel will limit food resources and drive up costs. Now, Prof. Av ... read more
