Join top researchers from Georgia Tech and industry leaders from both chemical and biotechnology sectors as we explore current research and future trends in biobased products. As global population grows, bio-derived chemicals and materials are seen as solutions to the many societal and environmental challenges.

The workshop is organized and hosted by the Renewable Bioproducts Institute and all sessions will be held at the Paper Tricentennial Building.

We will welcome leadership from Lanzatech, Algenol and Eastman Chemical Company during the morning sessions, followed by an afternoon of break-outs and insights into the latest research being conducted by Georgia Tech's Lignin Group, a collaboration made up of both students and faculty developing cost-efficient and ecologically sustainable processes from lignin to defined chemical compounds.

Lunch will be served, followed by an interactive poster session with graduate student researchers engaged in this space. For more details, including the latest agenda, please visit our Emerging Pathways workshop website.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Dione Morton via email dione.morton@rbi.gatech.edu or by phone at 404.894.9550.
