The Biobased and Renewable Products Advocacy Group (BRAG™) sponsored the 5th Annual Next Generation Bio-Based and Sustainable Chemicals Summit, which took place February 4-7, 2014, in San Diego, California. The Summit is considered one of the premier biobased and sustainable chemicals information and networking events for biobased start-ups, global chemical majors, brand owners, feedstock providers, venture capitalists, and academics. This year's Summit provided a detailed overview of the critical developments the industry is currently facing, including innovative feedstocks, end-user applications, and progress of established and new chemical production platforms and applications.


Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. and Of Counsel to BRAG, chaired the pre-Summit Business Strategy Conference. During the Summit's Strategic Business Forum to explore policy, economics, investment, and global partnering to support the growth of the biobased industry, Ms. Bergeson gave a presentation that focused on key regulatory issues pertinent to renewable, biobased chemical feedstocks that manufacturers must anticipate and address to ensure scaling-up manufacturing operations proceed as planned. In addition, Kathleen M. Roberts, Executive Director of BRAG, gave opening remarks on the first day of the Summit and moderated a panel discussion on "Spurring Market Adoption: Brand Owner and Chemical Major Perspectives."
