10-11 December 2019: Holland Chemistry @ CHAINS
Meet us in our business bar @ Kempenzaal or visit the interesting focus sessions in the field of Circularity and Climate:
Tuesday 10 december 2019 11.45-13.45 hrs
Chemical Innovations for Circularity, chair Chris Slootweg (room 80-81-82)
Scientific challenges are in the field of expanding the scope of sustainability to the entire lifecycle of resources and products, with the aim to replace today’s linear ‘take–make–dispose’ approach with newly developed, more sustainable, processes. This will help to mitigate environmental concerns and reduce the impact of waste on the environment. Novel technologies and innovations are needed to optimize resource efficiency across value chains and promote a closed-loop, waste-free industry, which will also contribute to realizing the circular economy and securing our sustainable future.
Jean-Paul Lange (Shell / UT): Plastic recycling – a first step towards a circular carbochemical economy
Esther Zondervan-van den Beuken (TNO): PACK-CE: Accelerate the use of recyclable multi-layer food packaging for the transition to a circular economy
Wednesday 11 december 2019 10.20-11.40 hrs
Chemical Innovations for Climate, chair Joost Reek (Auditorium)
This year, Holland Chemistry and NWO work together to highlight the importance of PPP projects and feature some important project results on reduction of greenhouse gases and climate adaptation. The focus session will start with an introduction of the NWO PPP-instruments, followed by two duo presentations (private-public). The session will be informative, will have interaction and will be very interesting to attend!
Marnix Wagemaker (TUD) + Guy Verbist (Shell): SPEAR – Solid and Polymer Electrolyte Advanced Research
Michail Tsampas (DIFFER) + Kees-Jan Westrate (Syngaschem): Syncat – Electricity to Chemistry, Catalysis for Energy Storage
The winner of the Gouden KIEM and the winning team of the Holland Chemistry Student competition will be announced during the award ceremony on Tuesday night.
See you @ CHAINS2019!
