Summary

The 20th century was the age of the fossil-based economy. Petroleum overtook coal and drove growth and prosperity for much of the world, but our global dependence on petroleum for everything from fuel to plastics to everyday household goods is unsustainable. To meet the needs of a fast growing, largely urban population in the face of climate change, we must employ disruptive thinking and technologies. Science holds answers. Join Jan Koninckx, global business director for biofuels at DuPont Industrial Biosciences, and Mike Saltzberg, global business director for biomaterials at DuPont Industrial Biosciences, for a conversation about how we unlock the power of renewable raw materials to create the fuels and products we need, and begin the era of the bioeconomy at scale.
