“2013 was an exciting year for the bio-based industry as it has continued to move from strength to strength and the Sustainable Bio Awards are the perfect showcase of this,” said Nadim Chaundry, Global Bio Markets Series Founder.
“This is the place where companies and individuals are able to present their work to the wider bio industry and to be recognised for their efforts. We are expecting a strong number of entries this year and our judges are already looking forward to reading and evaluating the submissions from so many exciting innovations and projects.”
