About Joe Schroeder

Joe has 28 years of experience as organic chemist: 12 years in small molecule synthesis for the pharmaceutical industry and 16 years at NatureWorks. An experimentalist with an interest in impurity generation and tracking, reaction kinetics, and mechanisms of the lactide and polymer process. Joe is interested in monomer stereochemistry manipulation, the role of polymer functional end groups, and additive chemistry, and the use of NMR spectroscopy to determine structure, composition of polymer blends, and additive packages.


Don’t just take our word for it

You can create value by doing something that's good for the world, and I'm not talking about making money and then giving it away. I'm talking about the way you make money is by doing something that the world needs, and so that's what's so -- one of the things that's so inspiring about being here is that that is underlying all the businesses here.
Kaihan Krippendorf
Founder, Outthinker
I'm inspired from the standpoint that I'm coming back from the conference with an understanding of more of the material science. And that's really, really, really important because that means that it's going to impact work that I've got going on in the laboratory right now.
Jesse Hipps
Anyone that's out there, whether you're a product or service provider or just somebody that wants to understand what's happening in the bioplastics industry, I recommend strongly that you think about coming to Innovation Takes Root. This is a conference where you're going to learn a lot, you're going to actually be able to have the opportunity to collaborate with others and develop partnerships that will last a lifetime.
