Author information

Birgit Kamm has been a member of the board and scientific director at biopos e.V. since 1998. She founded the Green Biorefinery Association Berlin-Brandenburg in 1997 and co-founded the gmbH, Potsdam (a research, development and transfer company). She is a member of several scientific associations, such as the Society of German Chemists, Liebig Association of Organic Chemistry, and of the American Chemical Society, Green Chemistry and Subdivision.

Patrick Gruber is currently President and CEO of Outlast Technologies. He is the former Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at NatureWorks LLC (formerly Cargill Dow LLC), USA. He has over 40 patents to his name and has repeatedly won top awards for his work in chemicals made from renewable resources, including the Discovery Award for Environmental Innovation awarded by the Christopher Columbus Fellowship Foundation, the US Presidential Green Chemistry Award, and the US Department of Energy Technology of the Year Award 2001, together with Cargill Dow Inc., for the pioneering NatureWorks PLA project. He has served on the Advisory Board to the Energy Futures Coalition, The DOE/USDA Biomass Federal Advisory Board, and several other boards.

Michael Kamm studied organic chemistry in Merseburg. Following a research assistantship in Halle-Wittenberg he moved to Potsdam University, founded biopos where he has been involved in the material exploitation of regenerative raw materials. He has been President of since its foundation in 2001.
