Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Pepsi are joining the key annual meeting of industry experts at the forthcoming 5th Bio-based Chemicals Conference and Exhibition (www.worldbiofuelsmarkets.com/biochem) as the industry discusses how to successfully partner and scale up production to meet the rapidly growing market demand for sustainable products.

The conference organiser, Green Power Conferences, have carried out months of in-depth research and expert interviews and their findings indicate a dramatic increase in the rise of commercial scale production since last year's event.

The key hot topic for the industry is how to successfully create and develop partnerships to bring bio-chemicals in commercial volumes to market. The new bio-based chemicals production technologies require both investment and expertise to successfully bring new products to market.

Conference organiser, Hannah Yates, commented "we are very pleased to have Pepsi, Danone and Kimberly Clark address the industry this year with their product requirements. This will be a great year for the launch of bio-based products be it bioplastic bottles, yoghurt pots, bags or even cosmetics. It was good to see that Solazyme's microalgae-based prestige anti-aging skincare line, Algenist, has now expanded to over 1,100 retail locations worldwide".

Bio-based Chemicals (www.worldbiofuelsmarkets.com/biochem March 13-14, Rotterdam, The Netherlands) will once again be co-located with the 8th annual World Biofuels Markets Congress & Exhibition (www.worldbiofuelsmarkets.com) - which will bring together over 1500 decision-making delegates, thought-leading speakers and world-class sponsors from every part of the bio economy value chain, in one place at one time, to network and debate the most current topics.

Join the debate to hear more from these representatives (view their full interviews here), along with all 35 confirmed speakers, at the 5th international Bio-based Chemicals Conference, 13-14 March in Rotterdam, which will unite leaders to accelerate commercialisation, innovation and market uptake.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
