DuPont Industrial Biosciences (DuPont) president William F. Feehery, Ph.D. will keynote the American Chemical Society (ACS) Green Chemistry Institute’s 21st Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering (GC&E) Conference on Tuesday, June 13 at 8:45 a.m. EST. Dr. Feehery will address other business leaders, policy makers, educators, students and professionals from the scientific and academic community to share his insights on the latest in green chemistry and engineering research.
“As biobased products increasingly compete favorably against conventional products on both price and performance, they offer the additional advantages of being renewable and more sustainable than traditional products,” comments Dr. Feehery. “These factors drive demand for continued innovation, new products and new jobs. The continued expansion of the bioeconomy is therefore not only the ‘right’ thing to do, it’s the smart thing to do from a business perspective.”
As president of DuPont Industrial Biosciences, Dr. Feehery reportedly leads a global team of more than 2,500 scientists and engineers. Since joining the business in 2013, he has established himself as a prominent leader in the bioeconomy, ranked by Biofuels Digest as one of its top ten voices in 2016, according to the company. He recently discussed technologies that are catalysts for a more sustainable future at The Economist’s 2017 Sustainability Summit in March 2017.
The American Chemical Society (ACS) Green Chemistry Institute’s 21st Annual Green Chemistry & Engineering (GC&E) Conference will examine innovative developments in green chemistry and investigate practical ways businesses, governments and academic institutions can create a more sustainable world, according to DuPont. This year’s theme, ‘Making Our Way to a Sustainable Tomorrow,’ will challenge speakers and participants to explore technologies that will yield the most valuable results for a safer and brighter future. The three-day program will present attendees with a variety of insights from world-renowned scientific leaders to c-suite executives of Fortune 500 companies.
