Plant-based Summit 2015: Innovation, Co-development for Biobased Products

On 8 – 10 April 2015, the Plant Based Summit (PBS) will launch its third edition in Lille, France. This year’s PBS will focus on the innovation, co-development and operational implementation necessary for the widespread market deployment of biobased products. And SusChem will be there to show how the platform is contributing to the evolution of plant-based, green and sustainable chemistry!

PBS is organized by the Association Chimie du Vegetal (ACDV) that represents the French plant-based chemistry sector working in partnership with publishing group Infopro Digital. The Plant Based Summit organisers’ strong position in the industrial landscape is key to allow the whole plant-based chemistry value chain to be gathered again in Lille including actors from the agro-industrials, chemical intermediates, chemists and end-users.

With a long-term approach and proven track record, PBS 2015 offers a high-quality programme looking at the future for biobased business. The previous two editions of this conference have been very well attended and the summit was one of the first European events dedicated to the bioeconomy.

PBS 2015 has a varied programme including four plenary sessions on the bioeconomy:
  • International Development - How the US, Brazil and Malaysia foster industrial development and growth
  • Open Innovation for market success - How brand owners or downstream users get involved in the value chain and manage the innovation processes
  • European and National Strategies -How the European Commission and Member States foster cooperation and major development in value chains
  • CEO’s Roundtable - How biobased solutions are integrated in the growth strategy of companies
SusChem session
SusChem is organising a session at PBS 2015 that will provide a vision of how biobased chemistry is part of the wider world of sustainable chemistry with a focus on the SusChem vision. SusChem is working to reinforce the links between the mainstream chemistry and the biobased sector.

The SusChem session in on April 8 from 11:15 to 12:45 and is entitled ‘Plant-based chemistry as a contribution to Sustainable Chemistry.’ The session is chaired by Ward Mosmuller of DSM.

In addition to a presentation from SusChem there will be contributions from three companies (BASF, SEKAB Biofuels and Chemicals, and Solvay) presenting examples of their experience in the area. You can find out more on the session here. SusChem will also participate in the trade exhibition at PBS 2015.
