2020 Program Track Topics
From enhancing crops to be resistant in the face of threats like disease and climate change to developing novel ingredients for popular food items, biotechnology is essential to sustaining the future of our global food system. How is your company using biology-based tools, like gene editing of plants and animals, to enhance natural processes?
The nation’s transportation sector leads all others in greenhouse gas emissions. As we look to decarbonize travel—including for both road transport and aviation—sustainable fuels are increasingly important because we can’t rely on electrification alone. Through biotechnology we have the power to decarbonize transportation with biofuels made from a variety of non- petroleum feedstocks, like plants and agricultural residues.
There are 5 trillion pieces of plastic floating in our oceans. Our reliance on products derived from fossil fuels is harming our planet. Through biotechnology, we can meet this challenge head-on by making the same reliable materials through biobased manufacturing. Hear the latest industry developments working to meet the spurring consumer demand for sustainable products.
Pitch your company's story, pipelines, and objectives to a global audience of business development executives, investors, research analysts, policy makers and media.
