Reinventing chemistry for a sustainable future

At the Institute for Sustainable & Circular Chemistry, we (re)design, synthesize and investigate molecules and materials for circularity and sustainability.

Through both fundamental and more applied chemistry research, we take on the three major challenges that our society faces: the energy, resource, and materials transitions. We adopt a systems approach to the sustainability transition, reaching out across disciplines using chemistry as a bridging and key enabling science.

We believe in training and educating a new generation of chemists by giving them a strong foundation in chemistry, coupled with the ability and curiosity to look across the boundaries of science and to connect different disciplines. By making these fundamental connections through research and education, we aim to reinvent chemistry for a sustainable future, building the foundations of circularity into the molecular and material blueprint.
