Towards a sustainable society 

In the Paris Climate Agreement more than 150 countries intend to limit the increase in global average temperatures to well below 2 degrees Celsius. Chemical industry needs to contribute with establishing more sustainable pathways in producing chemicals and materials, reducing their footprint.

The shift from fossil raw materials to biobased raw materials makes an important contribution to reducing GHG emissions. The use of biobased materials and recirculates reduces the effect on climate change and contributes to a more sustainable and circular economy. To develop biobased value chains, agriculture and forestry must be connected as supplier of commoditized raw materials. All this while ensuring food security and maintaining ecosystems around the globe.

InSciTe helps entrepreneurs and industry to realize their biobased and circular dreams by providing them with knowledge and piloting infrastructure. InSciTe brings scaled-up processes in which fossil feedstock is replaced with renewables, including a substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. All this by taking full profit of new functionalities, offered by nature, for enhanced properties.

How are improvement in sustainability measured ? By Life Cycle Analysis, one of InSciTe’s competences. And often favorable economic and ecologics go hand in hand.

How to implement all this ? By open innovation, offered by InSciTe. By bridging to Valley of Death through supporting entrepreneurs with process development and piloting, enabling them to move their green ideas to commercial business.
