Ag Tech Innovation
In recent years there has been a significant upswing in capital and companies turning various wastes into a range of products -- polymers (PHA, PLA, PE or PP), fibers or biochar from cellulosic or carbon-rich sources, animal feed from distillers grains, human or animal protein products from invasive species (such as water hyacinth) or as co-products (such as sweet potatoes), and of course renewable energy either as electricity, or liquid fuels -- jet, diesel, gasoline, etc. What issues or opportunities do you see?

Discussion topic 1: How do you get projects successfully funded?
What are your stories about "what to do" and "what not to do" in renewables project finance? Patterns of success or hard-won lessons learned are vital to accelerate the growth of any industry, with reaching scale and ease the goal.

Waste Tech Innovation
By definition, Waste-to-Value (W2V) includes these four segments: (1) Waste-to-energy conversion (2) Waste-to-materials recovery and conversion (such as bioplastics, biochar, biopesticides, etc.) (3) Waste stream management (4) Waste-to-fertilizer conversion. What questions, issues, hope for the future or ideas do you have? Would you consider incineration of wastes part of W2V segment (1) or not?
