Washington, DC – SCD-iBIO, an industry group associated with the Society of Chemical Manufacturers and Affiliates (SOCMA), today announced that theFirst International Forum on Commercializing Global Green: From Raw Materials to Global Brands will be held November 12-14, 2012, at the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) in Philadelphia, PA.

The First International Forum, sponsored by the American Chemical Society, AIChE, CHF and SOCMA, is a three-day interactive forum that will include not only in-depth discussions but opportunities to network and form new professional relationships along the entire value chain, from raw materials to branded consumer products. Attendees will also hear about pilot, scale-up and engineering issues, as well as best practices and lessons learned in both commercial and market development. The event will conclude with opportunities to become involved with SCD-iBIO working groups focusing on issues related to ensuring the reliability and sustainability of bio-based products and enhancing the value of global brands.

“Industrial biotechnology is at an inflexion point for becoming a significant factor in producing bio-based chemicals, materials and fuels. These products, resulting from commercial development of the ‘new’ biology, will create economic growth and business opportunities for meeting increasing world demands for food, energy, water and materials as the world population expends from 7 to 10 billion over the next generation,” said William B. Armiger, Ph.D., Executive Director of SCD-iBIO and President of BioChemInsights, Inc.

SCD-iBIO, whose launch last month was announced by SOCMA, aims to advance the commercialization of industrial biotechnology, which is the application of biology for the production and processing of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, materials and energy. The group is referred to by its acronym, which stands for the Society for the Commercial Development of Industry Biotechnology.
