These conferences bring together senior executives and global industry leaders in the oil & gas and chemicals field. At both conferences Mr. Walsh will highlight Intrexon's proprietary methane bioconversion platform to convert natural gas into high-value fuels and chemicals through microbial fermentation. Due to its low cost and abundance, natural gas is an attractive feedstock for the production of liquid fuel and industrial starting materials. Intrexon's biologically-based process enables significantly less opex than liquefied natural gas and less capex than Fischer-Tropsch offering the potential for significant margins on the products it produces.
