Sustainable Planet Customer Keynote
Marcel Wubbolts, Chief Technology Officer at Corbion, discusses the need to reconsider industrial processes to include carbon emissions. Once understood, many processes can be re-engineered to minimize or eliminate carbon emissions. Corbion's industrial scale manufacturing process for lactic acid polymer is described. Corbion is transforming the process to become carbon negative (a carbon absorber) providing a sustainable feedstock for future bio-degradable plastics based on polylactic acid.
