Sustainable Chemistry Innovations

ISC3 Innovation Hub

Innovative solutions to combat and prevent pollution in the areas of mobility, energy, urbanisation, and agriculture very often originate in the chemical sector and mostly stem from its research community and start-up companies. Examples are fossil fuel substitutes, new energy storage systems and new construction and insulation materials. However, it is not easy to bring innovative solutions to the market. The  ISC3 Innovation Hub hosted by DECHEMA e.V. initiates and supports sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship in the chemical and chemicals-related sectors.
