Geleen/The Netherlands – According to Bert Groothuis, Director Corporate Sustainability Europe, this research centre combines Sabic's expertise in chemical and polymers. “A great example is the development of a new product based in light weight foamed polyolefins, specifically developed for bumper applications for the automotive industry, with benefits such as improving fuel economy and reducing CO2 generation, noise and vibration and increasing safety and harshness (NVH) control.”

Bert Kip, CEO Brightlands Chemelot Campus, shared the developments within Brightlands and the region: “With Sabic’s new research building, as well as some 300 scientists now active, the campus community will develop further. We are on our way to turning this community into a European material hotspot for businesses and research institutes with new and unprecedented opportunities to grow and innovate.”
