Most of the materials and chemicals used in modern daily life – such as plastics, packaging, furniture, clothing and pharmaceuti­cals – are carbon based. Changing this paradigm is an ambitious goal but also a promise for a better future. This is why at Avantium Renewable Chemistries we work on developing practical solutions to accelerate the transition to a fossil free world. We do this by focusing on innovative plant-based chemicals and materials as well as aiming to convert carbon dioxide (CO2) to a valuable resource for sustainable products.​
