FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Kingston, ON – Advonex® International’s Chief Executive Officer Dr. Chad Joshi will be a featured guest speaker at the 100th Canadian Society for Chemistry Conference and Exhibition in Toronto on May 30 – June 1, 2017.

Global utilization of fossil fuels causes serious issues concerning energy security, depleting oil reservoirs and environmental pollutions. Climate change, caused by global warming due to increased levels of greenhouse gases (GHG) in the atmosphere, is recognized as one of the most serious challenges facing the world today.

Dr. Joshi’s presentation titled “Replacing the ‘Rest of the Barrel’ with Renewable Hydrocarbons” on Tuesday, May 30 will discuss how climate change is forcing us to examine how we can replace petroleum products with renewable replacements, and how Advonex’s technology and engineering advancements is driving growth in the chemical sector.

“While many companies have focused on producing renewable fuels such as ethanol or biodiesel, Advonex’s technology produces larger hydrocarbon molecules that are key in producing high-performance base-oils, waxes, mineral oil and petrolatum which can replace petroleum-derived products with better performing renewable, plant-based components”, said Dr. Joshi. “Key factors in the company’s success include developing products that offer performance enhancements beyond being “green”, seeking government support for technology development, building industrial partnerships to pull the products into the market, and developing secure supply chains.”
