Organization profile

This professorship is led by lecturer André Heeres and focuses on making chemistry more sustainable. Here, we work on converting renewable raw materials into applicable semi-finished products and materials. The aim of our research is to develop alternatives to materials derived from petrochemicals. These are materials that depend on fossil fuels. Furthermore, the professorship works on chemical recycling of (bio)polymers and industrial applications of high-quality plant-based ingredients. In this way, the Biobased Chemistry & Refinery professorship contributes to a sustainable chemical industry.
