Innovative Startups: New Paths to Fine and Specialty Chemicals
Organised by BCNP Consultants GmbH
More and more startups from the chemical industry are founded. No wonder: 97 percent of all products contain at least one chemical process step. And the trend towards more sustainable materials and processes from newly founded is gaining momentum.
Our chemistry world is changing, including the world of fine and specialty chemicals.
The trends are: renewable raw materials, new production methods, industrial biotechnology, utilization of secondary side streams and residues or urban mining.
In a cooperation, Chemspec Europe and BCNP Consultants bring for the second time young startups, their innovations and the topic of chemistry founding on stage.
The three-hour program includes a keynote lecture, short presentations by founders of chemistry startups and a panel discussion.
