ISC3 – International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre


Welcome! ISC3 sounds like chemistry, doesn’t it? And it is! But ISC3 is much more besides. ISC3 stands for International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre. The ISC3 is an institution which is still “under construction” – and you can help to build it!

The world is faced with major challenges, such as global population growth, poverty, hunger and deteriorating environmental conditions, increasing migration, climate change, scarcity of resources and the worldwide erosion of stable ecosystems. And the chemicals industry plays an important role. On the one hand, as a consumer of raw materials and energy it is a key emitter and thus a cause of the problem. Yet on the other hand it today already plays an important part with many of its products in solving the problem and can make a substantial contribution to achieving global sustainable development goals. The ISC3 – International Sustainable Chemistry Collaborative Centre wants to support the global breakthrough of Sustainable Chemistry

Sustainable chemistry will thus also become “mainstream” as a transformation process. Chemical enterprises with suitable innovations can assert themselves in the marketplace – this is the vision behind the project. On this web site, you will find information about the project for the establishment of ISC3We answer your questions: Who are the initiators? Who is running the project? What is going on? Who are the stakeholders involved? What about the timetable of the project? Which results have been achieved up to now?
