What will the future of the chemical industry look like?

The Renewable Materials Conference (RMC) in Siegburg/Cologne (Germany) is the world’s largest conference on chemicals and materials based on biomass, CCU or chemical recycling – the only alternatives to fossil-based chemicals and materials. The unique concept of presenting all renewable material solutions at one event hits the mark. It covers the entire value chain from alternative carbon feedstocks, the chemical industry, the materials sector, product manufacturers to brand owners and investors. Nearly 500 participants from 32 countries attended the last conference in May 2023, 90% of whom were from industry.

This year, over three days, top speakers from industry, academia and policy will present and discuss the latest updates on technology, innovation, policy and markets to an international audience of experts: 80 presentations, 20 panel discussions and more than ten workshops. Companies, associations and institutes are invited to run a workshop and take part in the exhibition. The perfect place to network and partner along the entire value chain of the new renewable carbon economy.
