Interdependency of AOCS Disciplines: 
Sustainable Technologies for Consumer and Industrial Use
Organizers: Steve Bolkan, Director of Research, Church & Dwight, USA; and Jeff Scheibel, The Procter & Gamble Company, USA.

The various technologies of AOCS divisions represent a nexus for innovation when they are brought together into a single forum such as this session. We believe that the creation of new and novel ideas and thoughts can be generated through the blending of adjacent technologies.   

This session highlights some emerging new chemical and biological processes.  It is anticipated that these and related technologies could transform the future of agricultural products, chemicals, and fuels.  Ultimately, these novel technologies and derivatives could have an increasing presence in formulated consumer product ingredients as flavors, fragrances, and surfactants.
