His Majesty King Willem-Alexander and Her Majesty Queen Máxima will be paying a working visit to the German federal sates of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thüringen, the aim of which is to strengthen the broad mutual relations between the Netherlands and the respective federal states.
Both in the Netherlands and in Germany there is a growing realisation that it is crucial to work on alternatives to fossil resources for the future of the chemical industry. The biobased economy concerns the use of renewable resources for the production of energy, materials, basic and special chemicals and other non-food applications. The challenge lies in developing, from economic, technological and sustainability perspectives, business cases that offer sensible alternatives.
Given the good existing relations in the field of chemistry between the Netherlands and the region, the trade mission to the German federal sates of Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt and Thüringen, led by Liliane Ploumen, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, offers opportunities for Dutch business and industry. In the Leipzig/Leuna region there is the strong local BioEconomy Spitzencluster with a number of multinationals, many SMEs and several leading research institutes like the Fraunhofer-Zentrum für Chemisch-Biotechnologische Prozesse CBP and the Helmholtz instituut UFZ.
Dutch knowledge institutions and companies that offer solutions and products in the field of van green chemistry, such as biocatalysis, biorefinery, bioplastics, green gas and high-grade biobased products.
The mission is from 7 to 9 February 2017.
Registration until Friday 9 December 2016.
