After oil – where can chemicals come from?

CIEX_LOGO_700x400For more than a century, petrochemicals have been the mainstay of the chemicals industry.  However, the great possibility that the era of oil is drawing to a close must drive research into renewable feedstock to fulfill their potential to replace oil.

Dr. Cabirol will also be discussing safety issues in using renewable feedstock for skincare products.

Having served previously as Head of R&D – Biotechnology at Evonik, Dr. Cabirol will also reflect on some of the major advances in materials and processing techniques allowing companies to operate in a more sustainable manner across the various industries.
