Info: Renewable Chemicals and Building-blocks: Renewable Materials Conference 2021, 18-20 May, online
Which renewable materials are solutions that meet the needs of future societies? As a response to this challenging question, nova-Institute has decided to unite all relevant industries in the new “Renewable Materials Conference”, May 18–20, 2021, featuring a unique concept to present all renewable material solutions at one event: bio-based, CO2-based and recycled. There is a growing market demand for advanced and ready-to-use renewable material solutions with a low carbon footprint – that are fossil-free.
For the first time, nova-Institute jointly presents all renewable material solutions: bio-based, CO2-based and recycled. Highlights and innovations of bio- and CO2-based chemicals and materials, and of chemical recycling will be presented. Or in other words: All material solutions based on renewable carbon – avoiding the use of additional fossil carbon.
Program highlights of the 1st conference day
The three-day program of the first Renewable Materials Conference is almost final and gives a complete overview of the latest renewable material solutions, a performance show for a wide range of sustainable raw materials and technologies .
The first day (18 May 2021) of the conference will focus on renewable chemicals and building-blocks. Latest news about biorefineries will be presented by Borregaard, Cosun Beet, NESTE and UPM Biochemicals. BASF, Eastman and BioBTX will show their latest insights on chemical recycling, Lanzatech and Renolit will present innovations on CO2-based chemicals. Shell will present, what this means for refineries. Further, Meo Carbon Solution, nova-Institute, TNO, Vito and Circular Biobased Delta will focus on new technologies, markets, sustainability assessments and strategies.

The conference will help shaping the sustainable future of chemicals and materials and will provide new advantages and synergies by establishing a meeting point for numerous cross-sectoral networking opportunities. Participants from the industry will be able to greatly benefit from the first event of this format as it provides a platform for renewable strategies and a broad range of new prospects and materials solutions. It will be held as an online event, which offers unique networking possibilities to the participants with the help of an innovative conference software from Finland.
nova-Institute (DE) would like to thank COVESTRO (DE) for sponsoring the innovation award "Renewable Material of the Year".
Neste (FI) and UPM (FI) will support the conference as Gold Sponsors, Alfa Laval (SE), FKuR (DE), MMAtwo (EU) and Renolit/Photanol (DE) as Silver Sponsors and LanzaTech (US) as a Bronze Sponsor.
