Date:4/25/2008

BERLIN, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Processes and products based on biomass and industrial biotechnology offer significant business potential for the chemical industry in a wide range of applications such as bioplastics. A panel on developments in the field of industrial biotechnology in Germany will be held at the World Congress on Industrial Biotechnology and Bioprocessing (April 27-30, 2008) in Chicago, Illinois. The panel runs from 10:45am to 12:15pm on April 28th at the Hilton Chicago, 720 South Michigan Ave.

Research institutes play a pivotal role in biotechnology investments, and they are particularly strong in Germany as the country has many internationally recognized research centers. Dr. Steffen Rupp is the Head of Molecular Biotechnology of Fraunhofer IGB at the Fraunhofer Campus Stuttgart. His laboratory is a part of the wider network of Fraunhofer Institutes, a world-renowned research organization with affiliate centers all over Germany. He will discuss renewable feedstock such as residual biomass and ways of transforming such biomass into practical energy sources.

Chemical parks are a major attraction to Germany for the chemicals and biotechnology industries. Dr. Markus Wolperdinger is in charge of industrial biotech activities at InfraLeuna GmbH. InfraLeuna is the owner and infrastructure provider of one of Germany's largest chemical sites. The Leuna chemical site is home to over 100 companies, including some of the world's top chemical companies. Dr. Wolperdinger will discuss activities in the industrial biotechnology field that are currently taking place at the Leuna chemical site.

Dr. Karin Bronnenmeier will discuss the transfer of knowledge from fossil based refineries to future biorefineries. Specifically the integration of biotech expertise from biopharma biotech will be the focus of her presentation. She is the "know-how" manager for Biotechnology Plants at Linde-KCA-Dresden, the Competence Center Biotechnology at Linde's engineering division. The Linde Group is a leading gases and engineering company with 50,000 employees in over 70 countries.

Germany has the largest market in Europe for both the chemical industry and thermoplastics. The panel will address investment possibilities in Germany in a diversity of sectors, such as biotechnology and bioplastic.
