It is interesting to note that the petrochemical industry is now interested in learning more about renewable-based chemicals alternatives as seen on this year's International Petrochemical Conference supplement commissioned by the National Petrochemical & Refiners Association (NPRA) for distribution at their annual meeting this week in San Antonio, Texas.
The NPRA picked ICIS to do the supplement although the trade group already had suggested topics for coverage. I, of course, was happy to contribute when I heard the NPRA wanted to know more about bio-based chemicals and their developments.
Thanks to my colleague John Baker (who put together the supplement) for giving me the chance to write this one. And I can post the article for free too! (Check it out below)
For those attending the NPRA, ICIS has a hospitality suite Salon C at the Marriott Riverwalk hotel. The ICIS suite will be open from Sunday 27th-Tuesday 29th March. You can also follow ICIS tweet updates at the NPRA via #ICIS and #NPRA hashtags.
