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

I strongly recommend Innovation Takes Root. It's a good opportunity to understand and see what happens in this area of biopolymers. It's an international event and not just on PLA. I think it's well done, well-managed, and well-organized. It was a good investment for me.

Innovation Expert - Polymers, Electrolux

I'd definitely come back (to ITR) and recommend it. I think many different industries could learn something from a conference like this - it really is focused on the next level of sustainability.

Vice President, Titan Robotics

It has been a wonderful event; very well organized. I especially appreciate the scheduling of activities, the alternation of speeches, and time to network, which has been one of the key successes from my point of view. We also felt very supported by your team; we had the feeling you believe in what Flo is doing and, for us, that's very important.
