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.

The Chemport Connect Live Event will be packed with 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.

The Live Event is preceded by a series of free webinars about current topics. Such as smart ways to deal with plastics at the end of their lifespan. Director Martine Brandsma of the National Test Center for Circular Plastics (NTCP) in Heerenveen is going to speak about this subject on 11 November. She will present a virtual tour of this unique R&D facility and will show how this unique facility contributes to improving the recycling systems of the future. More information can be found in the Agro&Chemistry events calendar. Previous webinars have been recorded and can still be viewed online on the Youtube channel of Chemical Cluster Emmen.
