The brothers and chemists André and Erik Heeres (Hanze University of Applied Sciences and the University of Groningen respectively, respectively) have completed a project in which an inventory has been made of which chemicals are widely available at the Delfzijl Chemistry Park and how these can be used to modify biomass flows from the region.

‘From a logistical point of view it is smart to use the chemicals that are already present’, says André Heeres, professor of Chemistry at the Hanze University of Applied Sciences. ‘By using chemicals that are already available, it is possible to speed up the greening of chemistry. Then it is only necessary to bring biomass to the chemical park. This may involve agricultural raw materials and residual flows that are already available in the North, or which are supplied via the Eems Harbour. ‘

Which routes are ultimately the most interesting for industrial production, will be announced in the final report, which will be released before the end of this year.
