Farewell Oil: Chemistry needs new resources

20 Jun, Lichthof at the Technical University of Berlin (TU Berlin), Strasse des 17. Juni 135, 10623 Berlin


Medicine, colours, plastics: numerous chemical products that shape modern-day life are based on carbon. As of today, this material is mostly made from sources such as mineral oil. But supply is limited and its usage is damaging our climate – a dead end.

Plants and carbon dioxide are available as sustainable and plentiful sources of carbon. How do they turn into innovations?
Representatives from politics, sciences, industry and the start-up scene will discuss sustainable alternatives to fossil oil at the Berlin Resource Summit.

Are you and your new company working in the fields of sustainable chemistry, efficient usage of resources and innovations? If so, please apply for our contest and use the Berlin Resource Summit to pitch your start-up idea. The winners can expect a prize money, attention of a targeted audience and valuable business contacts.

The event will be held in German, but pitches in English are also welcome. To sign up, please visit: http://www.einladung.cc/advicepartners/rohstoff-gipfel-2017
