Advanced materials

Chemical innovation makes a huge impact on society and our quality of life through the advanced materials that make our homes, our shops and businesses, the products that we buy, and by enabling the digital infrastructure that underpins our modern lives. Energy efficiency, robustness, light-weight, thermal conductivity, flexibility, fire safety, full recyclability, ease of installation and dismantling, self-cleaning characteristics, these are some of the multiple functions of the innovative construction materials empowered by chemistry. Mobility and transportation take also huge advantages of smart molecules: renewable-energy-powered vehicles, air purifying materials, lightweight, however shock-resisting, composites, noise insulation, shape shifting hybrid materials, integrated sensors and electronics; they all rely on the wondrous innovative formulas.For more, visit our mini-website!

Circular economy

Chemistry is here to stay and key to ensuring a resource-lean economy for tomorrow. Innovation from chemistry is critical to achieving a sustainable circular economy by making it possible to recycle materials that we use, optimising the use and re-use of water and energy loops and ensuring that all waste – including waste gases such as the greenhouse gas CO2 – are not thrown away or considered a pollution source, but used as a useful resource. New chemistry promises to revolutionise our world by turning sunlight, water and CO2 into clean, never-ending power for homes and businesses.
