The chemical industry is in need of new green building blocks. These need to be developped in a culture of intensive cooperation between knowledge institutions and industry. There are a number of relevant dedicated institutes and research facilities at Chemport Europe, each with its own strength and focus. There is more than new building blocks. Together, all partners are contributing to development circular chains consisting of four components: Feedstock, intermediate chemicals, polymers and materials and recycling. All available in the Northern Netherlands. That is how Chemport Europe is moving towards a circular economy. The waste streams from one company are the valuable raw materials for another company. Material and energy flows are exchanged where possible.Together, partners form a coherent production and innovative ecosystem. The Northern Netherlands is building an ecosystem that really matters. Not just nationally, but globally.
