There is currently a lot of interest in renewable and green chemistry, bio-based chemistry, CO2 Capture and Utilisation and chemical recycling. Refineries and verbund sites of large-scale chemicals are under considerable pressure; the biofuel industry is looking for new markets in chemistry and start-ups are looking for investors.
Specialists from the nova-Institute were able to recognize 25 applications or plastic products for which biodegradability is a viable or the best end-of-life option. All the details have been shared in the report titled ‘Biosinn – Products for which biodegradation makes sense’.
A study by Cowi and the nova-Institute has been completed for the European Commission. Supported by the University of Utrecht, the study aims at exploring the role and potential of renewable carbon in the economy towards mitigating climate change.
