DuPont Industrial Biosciences (DuPont) announced that Michael Saltzberg, global business director of DuPont Biomaterials, took part in The Future of Materials Summit, beginning on November 13 in Luxembourg. Saltzberg joined other materials business leaders for a discussion on “Best Practices for New Materials' Development,” led by Geoffrey Carr, science editor at The Economist and chair of the summit.
As the leader of DuPont’s global biomaterials programs and business development, Saltzberg spearheads the development and commercialisation of renewably sourced biochemicals and biomaterials based on plants rather than petroleum.
“Materials suppliers play a critical role in increasing the sustainability of supply chains across the industries that we serve, and we believe making high-performance and cost-efficient materials from plant-based feedstocks is part of the solution,” said Saltzberg. “I am looking forward to sharing the latest in DuPont’s biomaterials innovations with the group that The Economist has brought together for this Summit.”
The Future of Materials Summit – which runs through November 14 – will examine the modern materials “ecosystem” from research and development, through supply chains, to business applications and end of use.
