Organization and Affiliation
Since the VIIth Recovery Conference in 1994, the Recovery of Biological Products Conference Series has been co-sponsored by the American Chemical Society Biotechnology Division (ACS-BIOT) which is represented on the Recovery Conference Board and provides the Conference Series with Treasury, Tax and Compliance guidance and other fiscal services.
The Conference Series is dependent on financial sponsorship from industry. Contributions are used to offset meeting expenses for academic participants and invited academicians and are vital for keeping a balance between theory and practice, exploration and development, and to provide a continuous, innovative flow of ideas that will bring long term benefit. Each Conference has a balanced budget of expense versus income and a balance between sponsor donations and academic support.
With more than 150,000 members, the American Chemical Society is the world’s largest scientific society and one of the world' s leading sources of authoritative scientific information. A non-profit organization, chartered by the United States Congress, ACS is at the forefront of the evolving worldwide chemistry enterprise and the premier professional home for chemists, chemical engineers and related professions around the globe. The Society strives to be a “force for good”.
The mission of the ACS Division of Biochemical Technology is to promote the exchange of information among academic and industrial researchers regarding technology utilizing life-based systems to produce useful products and services.
