Bio-based Polyurethanes on the rise

Sorry for the silence today as I’ve been reprimanded to study more and blog less. But I guess I’m really addicted to blogging so let me sneak in this short post about my second to the last article that I did for ICIS before I got booted out.

ICIS’ custom publication has just released its polyurethanes supplement which will be distributed at the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) 2012 Polyurethanes Technical Conference that will be held on September 24-26 at Atlanta, Georgia, US. I was one of the contributing writers to this supplement and my focus was on bio-based polyurethanes development (of course!).

The whole digital supplement is free for access at ICIS. I will be posting more on my “behind the article” extra comments from companies that I’ve interviewed including Cargill, Bayer MaterialScience, Lubrizol, Biobased Technologies and BASF.


Just click the little square icon on the bottom right side of the Scribd window and it will take you to a larger screen where you don’t have to squint to read the article.
