Research themes

At ARC CBBC, experts from academia and industry pool their expertise to conduct state-of-the-art research in the field of chemistry with a view to facilitating the shift to a more sustainable and circular chemical industry. Our research focuses on three themes.

Greenifying the chemical industry

To achieve its mission of greenifying the chemical industry, ARC CBBC runs research programmes that contribute to various disciplines in which chemistry plays a key role: the energy transition, the feedstock transition and the materials transition. These three themes are currently of the utmost importance, as they strongly depend on the development of new products and processes in which chemistry intervenes at many levels.

Our contribution to these transitions is expected to have a significant impact on the chemical industry, accelerating the transition to a zero-carbon society and fulfilling the goals of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change.
