Project description

The Center for Sustainable Chemistry is an umbrella organization fully supported by the Faculty of Sciences, the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering and the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. The center wants to respond to the implementation of SusChem as the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry at the European level and the implementation of the innovation cluster policy at the Flemish level which resulted in the foundation of Catalisti as the spearhead cluster on Chemistry and Plastics. The Center for Sustainable Chemistry has a strong focus on research infrastructure and services with industrial relevance. That is why CSC is coordinating the interaction with CATALISTI. In this way CSC helped to allocate a substantial budget to chemistry related research to transform the chemical industry in Flanders to a CO2 neutral industry by 2050 with the MOONSHOT project.
