Circular chemistry and renewable processes have to be developed with great speed to meet the climate objectives and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Only then can they make an impact.

Circular chemistry provides solutions for reducing the quantity of fossil materials required to produce the products we use daily. Renewable processes therefore play an important role in fighting global warming.

Renewable processes of the future are:
– Biobased processes
– Chemical recycling
– Process electrification
– Green Hydrogen
– Renewable energy innovation

The Chemistry of the Future Series, being organised by Jakajima in close collaboration with strategic partner Brightlands Chemelot Campus, will cover specific themes concerning Circular chemistry during several conferences.

The series will start with the following promising and ambitious conferences:

This conference is all about turning waste plastic via pyrolysis /chemical recycling into new plastics competing with plastics made from virgin fossil oil. This requires that current recycling value chains change to a new sustainable ecosystem. As a result the creation of innovative new ecosystems will be a challenge with so many new and existing stakeholders.
Hydrogen can be used as a zero-emission fuel burned with oxygen. Hydrogen is a very important raw material of the future, presently it is used as feedstock for fertilizer production and methanol production, but more processes will adapt and the circular economy will enhance the role of hydrogen significantly. As a renewable transport fuel the commercial use of Hydrogen has taken of in applications to replace diesel in public busses, heavy transport and -moving equipment.

In conclusion these developments could become of paramount importance to change the way we recycle. Therefore the conference will take place at a location which strives to become leader in sustainability, Brightlands Chemelot Campus, our strategic partner. Brightlands Chemelot Campus is a world-leading innovation location in smart materials and sustainable manufacturing and home to a vibrant and fast-growing open community of groundbreaking companies and knowledge institutes. With its location, ecosystem and easily available expertise and knowledge, Brightlands Chemelot Campus is a unique location for innovative start-ups and corporations, forward-thinking knowledge institutes, daring entrepreneurs, brilliant researchers, talented students and visionary investors.
