Chemistry & Materials

The chemical sector in Europe is one of the largest and most diverse sectors in the world. It provides virtually all sectors of the economy with innovative and sustainable solutions to the challenges facing the economy and the environment today. With its network of multinational players and a large number of SME’s, the chemical industry fulfils a leading role in innovation. From sustainable and efficient processing and biomass conversion to the production of advanced (biobased) materials and polymers; the European chemical sector is a force to be reckoned with.

PNO Consultants engages in supporting European institutions, sector organisations and technology platforms, industries and research institutes with innovation in Europe’s chemical sector. We do that by developing visions and roadmaps, supporting the EU’s innovation policies and funding programmes. For example, we developed the SPIRE roadmap for eight sector organisations in Europe, under the lead of the EU’s Sustainable Chemistry Technology Platform. Our international chemistry experts have in-depth knowledge of the chemistry domain, and are engaged daily in promoting, funding and stimulating innovations in chemistry of advanced materials, chemical conversion, process technology, synthesis and enabling technologies for chemical, biotechnology and recycling industries. We aim to boost the industry’s ability to provide worldwide sustainable solutions.
