The Flemish government has approved a first series of projects within the Moonshot initiative. In total, 9 cSBO and 3 LSI projects received support worth more than 18 million euro.

Op 6 december presenteerden Pack4Food en de Vlaamse speerpuntclusters Catalisti, Flanders’ FOOD, VIL en SIM de Roadmap ‘Voedselverpakking van de Toekomst’. Deze roadmap zet een gemeenschappelijke visie en strategie om de komende jaren projecten op te starten rond duurzame verpakkingen.

At its 2019 Stakeholders Event SusChem presented the new Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SIRA).

The INCITE project has officially been launched. This 4-year project, coordinated by Oleon and primarily funded through the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, seeks to bring about a transition to a more flexible and sustainable chemistry. It does so by building on technology developed in the context of Catalisti’s Lipametics project.

Newsflash! The Catalisti Newsletter for October 2019 is out.

Jan Van Havenbergh, managing director bij Catalisti, en collega Luc Van Ginneken delen hun visie op samenwerking in de sector, verduurzaming en het ambitieuze Moonshot-programma in de nieuwste editie van NPT Magazine.

The chemical industry and environmental efforts don’t mix. It’s a common misconception, while in fact, chemical products and technologies form a key building block for a sustainable future. Likewise, sustainability is increasingly becoming an elemental compound of the chemical industry. Catalisti, the spearhead cluster for chemistry and plastics, specifically seeks to drive innovation and multidisciplinary partnerships in these high-impact industries. Catalisti is currently tackling a massive host of projects focused on sustainability, from the development of biobased resources to rolling out carbon-smart technologies in its Moonshot program. This ambitious, longterm program is supported by the Flemish government and is aimed

We can no longer let precious resources like water, CO2 and plastics go to waste. We must capture them for the circular economy and keep them in the loop for re-use. The CAPTURE initiative will do exactly that by literally bringing together scientists from many fields, allowing them to work with local, regional and national governments/industries. CAPTURE is the catalyst needed to make our relation with the planet more sustainable. CAPTURE is where innovation meets society meets industry. The CAPTURE initiative was launched in 2015 at Ghent University to find solutions for efficient waste treatment and resource recovery, with the
