Key stakeholders will discuss applications in space, biofuels, and the renewable chemical landscape during plenary programs at BIO’s 13th Annual World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology.

The Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) announced today that leading decision makers will gather at the world’s largest industrial biotechnology event, being held April 17-20, 2016 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, to discuss the future of industrial biotechnology.

“The Plenary Program for the 2016 World Congress is unlike any that we have had in previous years. Sessions will explore the next frontier for industrial biotech and highlight some of the next generation of scientists who will be leading it,” said Brent Erickson, executive vice president for BIO’s Industrial & Environmental Section. “Attendees will also hear from industry leaders and executives about their work to develop cost-competitive renewable chemicals and biobased products in the face of record low fossil fuel prices and rapidly increasing consumer demand for greener household and personal care products.”
