What is SusChem?
SusChem is the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry. It was created in 2004 as a joint initiative between Cefic
with the main objective to revitalise and inspire European chemistry and industrial biotechnology research, development and innovation in a sustainable way.
Creating solutions together
A European Technology Platform (ETP)
is, in essence, a mechanism to bring together all interested stakeholders in a particular sector to develop a long-term vision addressing specific challenges, creating a coherent, dynamic strategy to achieve that vision, and steering the implementation of an action plan to optimise benefits for all parties and society.
SusChem addresses challenges that are specific to the European chemical and industrial biotechnology industry, but also addresses challenges that apply to European society as a whole. We see a European chemical and industrial biotechnology industry that is highly ecologically efficient and competitive through technology leadership and innovation. We see an industry that is seen as a reliable, safe and responsible partner in society. To achieve this vision, SusChem brings together people from across the chemical community and wider society to formulate research and innovation roadmaps.
