Sustainability Talk: Chemistry is key – to a circular economy
February 10 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Sustainability Talks are back!
Join us 10th of February at 20:00h to hear from Klaas Jan Schouten on the following topic: Chemistry is key – to a circular economy
What if we could live in a world without excess CO2, and where chemistry is a positive word?
Join Dr. Klaas Jan Schouten, the Program Manager of VOLTA, the electrochemistry technology platform of Avantium. Using chemistry we can replace fossil feedstock by using carbon from plants and from CO2. In this way, chemistry can provide us with a sustainable & circular economy. But with a sustainable chemical industry we are not there yet!
We need completely new value chains and new business models to create a circular economy. Chemistry, technology, and business will come together in this talk about a circular economy based on renewable carbon.This is why Klaas Jan is also a part-time Research Assistant Professor at the University of Amsterdam, as he believes in connecting science and business.
Let’s make an impact together and join this sustainable talk!
This free event will be presented to you via zoom. Please register via Eventbrite to receive the Zoom details.
