Greening and local production are indispensable for a sustainable recovery after corona. Businesses in the Northern Netherlands are therefore stepping up a gear with the development of biopolymers, green chemistry and circular innovative recycling systems. This is evident from the digital event Chemport Connect: a full-day live program on 17 November, preceded by a series of free webinars.

For example, next Wednesday (14 October) there will be a webinar about new biobased polymer applications for high-value markets. It is one of the specialties of the Emmen chemical cluster and a topical subject in which Europe also plays a pioneering role in the world. What this means for producers and end users will be discussed during the webinar on 28 October. On 4 November, the use of bio-based raw materials in chemistry will be central; then the Sugar Agenda for the Northern Netherlands will be discussed. How we can deal smartly with plastics at the end of their lifespan is the subject of the webinar on 11 November, which takes a look at the National Test Center for Circular Plastics (NTCP) in Heerenveen. You can find more information about all these webinars in advance in the Agro&Chemistry Events Calendar. They will be recorded and will also be available online afterwards on the Youtube channel of communication agency Noordtij.

The Chemport Connect Live Event is on 17 November: a day full of fascinating presentations and various scoops, by Jan Roos from Teijin Aramid, Gerard Nijhoving from Senbis Polymer Innovations, Josse Kunst from CuRe Technology and Tom van Aken from Avantium. Peter Schelstraete of Ubuntoo leads a global panel discussion on innovation with biobased materials.
