From the one million ton of daily produced plastics, less than one percent is made under natural conditions: ambient temperature and pressure. Just like our bodies have been made in our mother’s womb. And all fauna and flora on our planet have been made under these circumstances. They have a track record of almost 4 billion years. How does that relate to all those daily plastics that are made at high pressures and elevated temperatures? Where we ask each other one question after hardly one century: how long can we continue like this? It speaks for itself that there is a whole universe of novel polymeric materials that can be made at much milder conditions than currently practiced in the fossil industry. We have started to bring that universe here and now in novel products.
Building the largest library of new ecological plastics, and having the ambition to bridge this bio-wealth to societal products used by consumers, we have started to cluster our materials. Each of these Technology Platforms will bring more and more representative products, which have world-leading capacities in their markets.
