The world has woken up to the fact that industrial processes need to be more environmentally friendly. Amsterdam Science Park’s top scientists and researchers are devoting their expertise to green chemistry and sustainable technology that challenges what has always been done. At its heart, the University of Amsterdam’s pioneering sustainable chemistry solutions are rethinking linear production processes and enabling substances to be reused. University of Amsterdam (UvA) is a world-leader in this specialisation and has designated sustainable chemistry as a priority research area. The result of its research is a cleaner, more sustainable planet and a socially responsible way of doing business.
“We want to solve waste issues while simultaneously creating products that already exist”
Using finite natural resources more responsibly has required a paradigm shift in education and business. Scientists are constantly seeking out clean chemical processes and opportunities to recycle materials at every stage of production. Sustainable chemistry’s impact factor is unmistakable. Examples of sustainable chemistry range from finding low-energy routes for the synthesis of base materials, to producing energy from water and sunlight, shifting towards biofuels across all industries, and preserving currently available resources with as little waste as possible. All of these areas rely on far-reaching innovation and collaboration across industries.
Amsterdam Science Park’s highly collaborative knowledge base brings top academic talent together with innovative startups and business leaders. This means that bright minds from different sectors can share knowledge to develop market-ready solutions in sustainable chemistry.
These and other game-changing innovations are underway every day at Amsterdam Science Park. Read more about sustainable research projects and how co-creation opportunities take discoveries from concept to completion.
