This conference is part of the Brightlands Chemistry of the Future Series.

Circular chemistry and renewable processes have to be developed with great speed to meet the climate objectives and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Only then can they make an impact.

Circular chemistry provides solutions for reducing the quantity of fossil materials required to produce the products we use daily. Renewable processes therefore play an important role in fighting global warming.

Renewable processes of the future are:
– Biobased processes
– Chemical recycling / Pyrolysis
– Process electrification
– Green Hydrogen
– Renewable energy innovation

The Chemistry of the Future Series, being organised by Jakajima in close collaboration with strategic partner Brightlands Chemelot Campus, will cover specific themes concerning Circular chemistry during several conferences.
