Industry Spotlight

Players in the chemicals industry face constant criticism for their negative impact on the environment and on people's health. Chemical manufacturing that uses organic resources or biobased products and other forms of green chemistry have thus emerged over recent years.

Startups in the sector are conducting research into alternative raw materials and new processes of extraction and transformation. As the necessary investment in R&D is colossal, young ventures are turning to corporates for research and production collaborations, as well as to inject capital, accelerate industrialisation and facilitate access to market.
