  • San Francisco, CA (1888PressRelease) January 16, 2012 - The 2010's appear to be lighting up the spirit of innovation in the field of chemicals/polymers in a manner similar to the one during 1930's to 1960's that led to the mighty Plastics Industry. This time the industry is in pursuit of manufacturing the traditional polymers as well as opening the path for newer materials but from renewable food / non-food biomass, thereby reducing dependence on crude oil. These developments, once considered academic only, are entering the commercial phase and represent truly remarkable innovations in the Chemicals Industry. Join us on this journey through the world of "BioPlastics: The Re-Invention of Plastics"; an adventure we have not seen in the chemical industry since the 1960's.
