Towards a Circular Economy

Moving our linear fossil based economy towards a circular economy means changing from a liquid, fossil based feedstock to a solid, waste based feedstock. This poses significant technical challenges but also opportunities for the development and deployment of new, novel technologies and solutions. In this presentation we will be touching at a high level on the requirements and challenges of these technologies. And based on technological developments we will be presenting a look into the near and farther future.

Molecules as a Service – From Linear to Circular

The transformation to a more sustainable, circular economy requires a variety of changes to traditional thinking about technology, business models and ecosystem dynamics. Becoming circular is impossible without embracing all of these changes. Yet, itr is possible even for individuals to start and accelerate impactful change. Triple Helix will demonstrate the Molecules as a Service approach as a model for fundamental change and will discuss real life cases such as SurePUre, the polyurethanes recycling/upcycling pilot plant near Antwerp.
