In this seminar, we will start with a brief overview of forces shaping the chemical industry at large and a review of the 12 principles of green chemistry, especially the atom economy. We will then focus on the aspect of competitiveness, and how to use technological innovation and economy of scale to survive on the commodity-based market full of multibillion-dollar incumbents. You will leave the seminar knowing: What are clean chemicals? What has shaped and defined the chemical industry at large? Can the chemical industry, where the main players have not changed since World War 2, be actually disrupted? Why now may be a good time? Which companies are challenging the status quo right now? How can you get involved in clean chemicals as an investor or an entrepreneur?

We are gathering a new cohort for this seminar. Tell us here if you’re interested in attending.
