It is a unique opportunity to bring together national and international industry leaders in support of consumer and corporate demand for bio-based products.

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack will provide keynote remarks on Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 5:00 pm, with the presentation of the “Bioproduct Innovation of the Year” award on Monday, Oct. 6. Team Gemini’s President Douglas P. Haughn will be among the presenters, speaking on Wednesday, Oct. 8 at 9:30 am, on the topic of “Biobased Materials from Wastes.” He will also facilitate a workshop on Tuesday, Oct. 7, at 10:45 am with Joel Stone of Green Biologics and Laurence Eaton (Billion Ton Study).

The event, organized by the Ohio Bioproducts Innovation Center (OBIC), is set to attract government procurement officials; buyers for retail stores and other large commercial companies; USDA-Certified bioproduct manufacturers; producers of bio-based materials, including commodity organizations, biotechnology providers, processors, compounders and other industrial collaborators; and rural economic development organizations.

“This conference presents an opportunity to connect, learn, and lay the foundation for potential project endeavors that can change communities,” advises Haughn. “From farmers familiarizing themselves with the latest methods and products for turning waste into energy, to universities and businesses integrating lessons about sustainability into their operations, there is a lot to be gained for those who participate.”

The list of participants is extensive, and includes the likes of: Battelle, Emery, Ford, Office Depot, PepsiCo, Sherwin Williams, Tarkett, and the USDA, to name a few.
