ChainCraft is a leading company in the development of sustainable medium chain fatty acids (MCFA). These C4-C8 fatty acids are produced by upcycling of organic residues (e.g. fruit and vegetable cuttings) via a proprietary fermentation process. With this technology, the company helps to reduce the environmental burdens of waste incineration and landfilling and can also offer a stable supply of  sustainable fatty acids at competitive price levels. These specific fatty acids can be used in a variety of existing and new applications in a.o. animal feed, lubricants, plasticizers, polymers, pesticides and flavors and fragrances. Most important fatty acid in the product range is caproic acid, a unique acid which has traditionally been highly priced and scarcely available.

Since 2019, ChainCraft is operating a commercial demonstration plant with an annual production capacity of 2,000 ton of fatty acids. A full scale flagship plant with an annual capacity of 20,000 ton of MCFA per year is planned for 2025. ChainCraft is actively looking for downstream partners to jointly innovate towards new and improved uses of these fatty acids, such as new polyol ester lubricants.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:

• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions

Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
