Info: Six Keynotes on the Path to a Sustainable, Renewable Chemical and Plastics Industry
Renewable Materials Conference 2021
Program available! The conference will take place as an online event. More than 200 participants registered - 300-400 expected
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.
Six keynotes on the Path to a Sustainable, Renewable Chemical and Plastics Industry
Thought leaders are shaping the future, especially now when all stops must be pulled out to stop climate change. We need to go beyond energy and look at the embedded carbon in the myriad products of the chemical and plastics industries. The keynotes will address these issues.
Unilever (UK) and VAUDE (Germany) will present their sustainability strategies and show how they generate demand for renewable materials. Neste (Finland) and UPM (Finland) will show their solutions through new product developments, WWF Germany will stress the importance of the transition from fossil to renewable carbon and DG Environment (Brussels) will show the future regulatory guidelines for plastic products.
The six keynotes – two on the first and four on the last day of the conference – will challenge and stimulate your view on the raw material transition in chemistry!

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".
